A businessman from Briceni would have attempted to corrupt an employee of the State Tax Service to get rid of the sanction, but was denounced at the NAC. The suspect would have dropped 10,000 lei in the tax inspector's office, asking the latter not to indicate the tax breaks detected in his company after a check.
The Fiscal Service employee denounced the corruption at NAC, and the suspect was detained for a period of 72 hours.
According to the information provided by the NAC, the supervised company manager would have tried to persuade the inspector to drop the report on the finding of the violations, by offering him a bribe worth 10,000 lei.
The inspector refused to accept the money, and the businessman threw the money under his desk, leaving the scene.
NAC initiated a criminal prosecution under Art. 325 , for active corruption. Following the documentation, the businessman was detained, and if found guilty, he risks up to six years in prison and a fine of up to 200,000 lei.
