The Supreme Court has postponed again, for the second time, the verdict in the file of the fictitious hiring at Teleorman Social Assistance Direction, where Social Democrat leader Liviu Dragnea is charged with corruption deeds, next to his former wife, Bombonica Prodana.

The final sentences has been delayed for June 21.

Judges of the Supreme Court seem to have postponed a verdict once again, this time due to the written conclusions filed by the lawyer of Dragnea’s former wife.

The anti-corruption prosecutors have asked during the last court hearing in the fictitious hiring file on Tuesday that PSD chairman Liviu Dragnea should be sentenced to seven years and six months in prison for abetting in abuse of office. Prosecutors have also called on the judge to cancel the suspension of the sentence ruled against the SocDem leader in the Referendum file, where he had been sentenced to two years on probation.

As for Dragnea’s former wife, Bombonica Prodana, the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) has asked the court to take note of the termination of the criminal after she had paid the prejudice. So, prosecutors have dropped charges against her.

The verdict in this case has been initially expected on May 29, but the judges postponed for June 8.

PSD chairman Liviu Dragnea and his former wife, Bombonica Prodana, were investigated for abuse of office in this case. Dragnea is accused of arranging that some members of the Teleorman PSD branch should be hired at the county Social Assistance Direction, without actually working there.

Prosecutors say that during July 2006-December 2012, Liviu Dragnea, as leader of the Teleorman county council and the leader of the PSD county branch, made the former executive director of the Social Assistance Direction in Teleorman County, on purpose, to break her office duties and maintain and pay two women employed in her institution. In fact, the two women were not working there, but at the party organization.

Overall, the two women had received RON 108,612 as salary rights.
