The High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) on Friday morning decided 30-day preventive custody for Andrei Hrebenciuc, the son of social-democrat deputy Viorel Hrebenciuc, in the forests and lands' restitution criminal file.


Justice Minister Robert Cazanciuc said Thursday in Botosani he is convinced the anti-corruption actions increased public trust in the judiciary. 'That is an activity seen as remarkable both at home and abroad. DNA has contributed to increasing public trust in the judiciary of late,' he said. 

The justice minister also said the actions of the DNA prosecutors are directly linked to the actions of law breakers. 'When there are breaches of the law and people do not understand there is a limit in everything, the DNA actions will surely continue,' added Cazanciuc.
