Paul Pacuraru, who was a labor minister in Romania between April 3, 2007 and September 23, 2008, was acquitted of corruption charges.

The sentence passed by the High Court of Justice is definitive.

The former labor minister, together with Ilie Morega, member of the shareholders’ board in the companies that are part of the Rovinari energy compound, were prosecuted for corruption in December 2008. Morega was also acquitted.

According to the prosecutors, Morega promised Pacuraru that he would help his son obtain public contracts (that are obtained following a public bidding) at the Rovinari Energy Compound, Turceni Energy Compound and the Oltenia Lignite National Society. The object of the contracts was professional training.

In exchange, the minister would have to appoint a person indicated by Morega in the position of head inspector at the Gorj Labor Inspectorate.
