A lawyer from Chisinau was detained by the National Anticorruption Center officers and anticorruption prosecutors for traffic of influence.
The lawyer had claimed and received 4500 euros, under the pretext that he has influence over some judges from the Court of Appeal in order to change the measure of preventive arrest to house arrest and later exculpate from criminal liability.
The suspect was detained for 72 hours. The preventive measures on this matter are still to be decided.
If found guilty, the man faces a sentence of up to seven years in prison or a fine of up to 6,000 conventional units - the equivalent of 300 000 lei.
