Previously, Pendiuc had been sentenced by the Bucharest Court to 8 years in prison with execution in a case in which he was accused of bribery and abuse of office with particularly serious consequences. In the same case, his daughter, Emanuela Pendiuc, accused of complicity in bribery and money laundering, was sentenced to 5 years in prison with execution.
“Abolish, in part, the appealed criminal sentence and rejudge: 1. Discount the resulting main penalty and the resulting complementary penalty applied to the defendant Pendiuc Tudor in the component penalties that he reinstates in their individuality. (…) orders the termination of the criminal trial regarding the defendant Pendiuc Tudor for committing the crime of bribery, (…) as a result of the intervention of the prescription of criminal liability (act of 18.02.2008). Reduces the penalty applied to the defendant Pendiuc Tudor for committing the crime of abuse of office with particularly serious consequences, in a qualified form, in a continuous form, (…) from 6 years in prison to 4 years in prison, following which the defendant Pendiuc Tudor will serve the sentence of 4 (four) years in prison”, reads the sentence of the Bucharest Court of Appeal.
The former mayor’s daughter was acquitted.
The decision is final.
The file was related to a contract for the purchase of some buses by SC Publitrans 2000 SA, a company that provides local public transport in Pitesti, with the Pitesti Local Council as the sole shareholder.
DNA claimed that in the sustainable development strategy of the local public passenger transport service in the municipality of Pitesti, it was foreseen that Publitrans would replace the car park with 80 new buses, purchased by the Local Council through the allocation of funds. The investigators claimed that Tudor Pendiuc took steps so that, in violation of the legal provisions, a joint venture agreement between Publitrans and the private companies CNCD/Girexim Universal SA was concluded, executed and extended, for the benefit of the last two companies.
Pendiuc was also accused of receiving, in 2008, for his daughter, Emanuela Pendiuc, an apartment in Bucharest – Quadra Place Residential Complex, worth 130,900 euros, in exchange for favoring the CNCD/Girexim Universal association in the procedure for awarding the association contract in participation, respectively the actual grant, execution and subsequent extension thereof.
