Higher Court of Justice magistrates decided on Friday to sentence ex Liberal deputy Dan Ilie Morega for three years of prison for acts of corruption, news agency Agerpres reads. Morega will be monitored for a trial term of five years during which if he commits a felony, the three years will also add up.

He was also required to pay 30,000 lei trial costs and 200,000 lei for the recovery of the prejudice he was found guilty of. The decision can be appealed. Morega was indicted in 2007 by anti graft prosecutors for acts of corruption.
