The National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) will verify all the assets declared by the president of the Vaslui County Council, arrested for bribery. The investigators will seek to find out if there are properties, sums of money or bank accounts that Dumitru Buzatu did not mention in the wealth declarations submitted over the years to the National Integrity Agency. To the extent that financial investigators find property or other assets and undeclared sums of money that cannot be justified from official income, they will demand their confiscation, along with the prosecution of the politician.

Dumitru Buzatu is in preventive detention for 30 days. He challenged the judges’ ruling, and most likely, during the coming week, at the Iași Court of Appeal, his defenders will try to convince the magistrates that preventive detention is too harsh a measure for the politician from Vaslui.

The PSD baron rejected the prosecutors’ accusations, but his defense statements were rather confusing. Initially, he said that the 1.25 million lei was his money from savings, then that, in fact, it would have been a loan requested from the businessman, to then return to the original version, that of savings.

On Saturday, the authorities detained another suspect in the person of an expert, accused both of bribery and influence peddling, in the case of the bribe taken by the president of the CJ Vaslui Dumitru Buzatu. He allegedly received from the businessman who is a witness in the file the amount of 714,000 lei to draw up an expert report on road modernization works executed by his company. On Sunday, the judges sent him behind bars for 30 days as well, being accused by the prosecutors of bribery and influence peddling.
