The driving license service in Bucharest is probing into the case of the Senate Speaker, Calin Popescu Tariceanu who renewed his driving permit by avoiding the long queue. The checks target the public servants who helped the Senate Speaker to escape the queue considering that about 1,000 people were queuing outside to file the documentation for a new driving license. The National Anti-corruption Directorate also filed a complaint against Tariceanu on this topic.
The Senate Speaker went to get his driving license renewed last week, but he did not stay queuing in front of the Driving License Direction, where there were about 1,000 people, but he entered the back door, where several employees showed him in and helped him with the proceedings for releasing his driving permit, News.ro reported, after they made a video footage with him entering the side door of the institution.
Calin Popescu Tariceanu avoided to answer where he went on the back door. His adjutant replied that ‘nobody walked through the back door”.
“I won’t discuss the case of a physical person, I cannot disclose personal information to you,” chief sergeant of the Driving License Service, Florin Radulescu told News.ro.
Later on, the direction announced that their were notified on this case and that checks are under way.
“The Driving License Direction was notified ex-officio following the media coverage and there are ongoing internal checks. The results of the investigation are to be announced in a press release,” the direction’s spokesperson Mihai Enache told News.ro.
The Bucharest prefect Paul Nicolae Petrovan also informed that an investigation is under way related to this case.
