Former Romanian PM Gets 2 Years in Prison for Corruption
Romania's highest court on Monday sentenced former prime minister Adrian Nastase to two years in prison for pocketing political donations while in office.
With the verdict, Nastase became the highest-ranking former official to face prison for graft. He has the opportunity to appeal the verdict.
Nastase, 61, was found guilty of funneling EUR 1.6 M from election campaign donations to accounts held by companies under his control in 2004.
He denied any wrongdoing and said that he was being prosecuted as part of a political vendetta, but he faces an additional set of corruption charges linked to a murky property deal.
Nastase was cleared in December of charges related to an undeclared sum of 400,000 dollars, which the court accepted that he had inherited from his wife's aunt.
Adrian Nastase served as Romania's Prime Minister from 2000 to 2004.
