Romania’s National Trade Registry Office (ONRC) announced on Wednesday that the Insolvency Proceedings Bulletin published the first case of personal bankruptcy in Romania. The Constanta resident Rosu Adrian, a real estate investor, became the first Romanian individual to enter bankruptcy.
Rosu was sentenced to 20 years in prison. The Constanta court ruled that he and two other people were sentenced to a total of 60 years of imprisonment for creating a prejudice to over 200 people, who paid between EUR 20,000 and EUR 50,000 for flats.
The Constanta court decision was taken at the request of the debtor who, besides banks and debt recovery companies, has 93 creditors, most of them individuals.
