A teacher from the Ovidius University in Constanta, Eastern Romania, was sentenced to 8 years in jail for receiving a EUR 200 bribe from a Greek student to help him pass an exam, in 2015. The court’s decision is final, Mediafax reported.
The teacher was caught in the act taking the bribe from the Greek student in his office at the university, in January 2015, and arrested at that time. The professor worked at the Pharmacy Faculty of the Ovidius University in Constanta.
The magistrates’ decision mentions that the sentence is for 11 counts of bribery, which means that the teacher had taken bribes before being caught. The court also ordered the confiscation of EUR 3,350 from the teacher.
