Ex-mayor of the Ghidighici village, as well as former and current advisers at the village administration could face the imprisonment from 6 to 10 years. Those three officials are suspected in organizing the fraud with plots of land owned by the local authorities. Local budget was damaged by more than 3 million lei.
The General Police Inspectorate officers found that during 2005-2015, those officials with the help of intermediaries, were passing the plots of land in the housing register and bought them for a few hundred euros.
In early April, the police made 17 searches in the homes and cars of the suspects. There were found documents on land property, issued on intermediaries names, papers of attorney, wills, various seals and other documents proving their guilt.
The suspects, aged 57, 60 and 65 years old, have been placed under house arrest for 30 days. If their guilty will be proved in the court, they could be imprisoned up to 10 years.
