Bucharest District 4 Court has decided on Wednesday to uphold the request for release on probation of the former FC Dinamo financier, Cristian Borcea, who is serving a 6 years and 4 months sentence at Jilava penitentiary in the football transfers file.
The ruling is not final, as the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) may file an appeal.
“The court upholds the request for release on probation filed by Borcea Cristian. It decides the release on probation of the prisoner sentenced according to mandate no. 429/2014 issued by the Bucharest Court on the basis of criminal sentence no. 238/2012. The prisoner is to consider article 104 of the Criminal Code regarding the revocation of the release on probation. Appeals may be filed in three-day’s time,” the court has ruled.
In March 2014, Cristian Borcea was sentenced to 6 years and 4 months in prison in the transfers file, along with seven other football representatives. Currently only Victor Becali and Cristian Borcea are still in prison, the rest of the convicts being released in the meantime.
