Ex-leader of Constanta county council, prosecuted in new file
Former leader of Constant County Council, Nicusor Constatinescu, is again prosecuted by the anti-corruption prosecutors, this time in a different case: for abuse of office for illegal payments worth over RON 11.6 M.
Former chief architect of the county council, Titi Cenusa and businessman Ioan Ichim are also prosecuted in this file.
According to the National Anti-corruption Directorate, during July 2007-April 2013, Nicusor Constantinescu and the county council’s ex-chief architect, broke their job responsibilities in the public sale procedure for the land register documentation of the public roads in Constanta county.
More precisely, the former county leader and chief architect coordinated actions so that a certain company controlled by businessman Ioan Ichim should win the auction for land register operations in the county, which caused the defrauding of the council’s budget. Therefore, the head of the county council, meaning Constantinescu, paid RON 11,621, 345 in several tranches to the company owned by Ichim to conduct land register works on the county roads.
Prosecutors say that some tranches were paid from the council’s budget to 45 communes, which, in their turn, transferred the sums of money to the same private company. The difference was that the works for this money have never been conducted.
