According to the Center, the man asked and received €2 000 for influencing officials of the Agency for Land Relations and Cadastre and other competent bodies to issue documents for legalizing unauthorized constructions located on Studentilor St in Chisinau.

As a result of investigative measures, the director was arrested in his office on Ceucari St, when he was taking the €2 000 marked ‘bribe'.

On June 14, the director received another €2 000 under the supervision of anticorruption officers. His acts were recorded with special equipment.

The man thus received €4 000 of the €8 000 asked. He is liable to a fine of 20 000 to 60 000 lei or two to six years in jail over traffic of influence.
