Man in custody after attempting to bribe customs officer

A Moldovan was detained yesterday by Anti-Corruption officers and prosecutors for trying to bribe a customs officer from a western border crossing point.

According to the customs employee, the suspect wanted to give him 500 lei ($25) in order not to pay the duties for importing a dish washing machine worth 300 euros.

The man is criminally investigated for ‘active corrupting.’ He risks to be imprisoned for 6 years and pay off a fine of 80,000 lei ($4,000.)
