15 customs officers have been detained at the western border-crossing point from Sculeni. Searches take place today at different addresses in Ungheni district, Sculeni village and Chisinau.
The border-crossing point was closed at 6 o’clock in the morning, and caused immense queues of cars. However travelers encourage the action of the anti-corruption squad and prosecutors.
About a month ago, 14 customs officers from Sculeni and Leușeni border-crossing points were detained for corruption.
In October, 28 employees of the Customs Service from the eastern crossing points of Tudora and Palanca and their chief were detained for graft.
16 of them were fired. Watch more pictures here.
