Romania: Dragnea’s request for sentence reversal was denied

Yesterday, the High Court of Cassation and Justice dismissed the request by former Social Democratic Party (PSD) President Liviu Dragnea for his sentence to be overturned, after a decision was made on May 27 and provides for 3 years and 6 months imprisonment for abuse of power in the event of fraudulent use. The decision of the High Court is final.

Liviu Dragnea had appealed the sentence, but, following the ruling of the High Court of Cassation and Justice, the former President of the Social Democratic Party will spend the Holidays behind bars. /ibna
