The National Integrity Authority verified the assets of Terenti and his family members for the period 2011-2018 when some irregularities were found.
According to the finding, the integrity inspector established that Terenti failed to declare three bank accounts, held by a member of his family. However, according to the law, he was obliged to declare all information about income and property.
The National Integrity Authority found that Terenti did not declare the usufruct right for a Skoda Superb car and a construction site, located in Ialoveni district, the center of Moldova.
At the same time, in his declaration of assets and personal interests submitted for 2017, Terenti would have included erroneous data about the price of sale of a BMW 525D car. Subsequently, while he indicated the amount of over 5,000 euros (100,000 lei), according to the sales contract from 2016, the car would have been sold for 1,500 euros (30,000 lei).
Asked for his opinion on these inconsistencies, Terenti mentioned the reason for the lack of attention while completing the data, but this fact is not a reason to be exempted from legal liability.
In this case, the integrity inspector notified the prosecution because there are suspicions of committing a crime, provided by art. 3521, paragraph (2) of the Criminal Code, giving false declarations, namely including intentionally or non-intentionally incomplete or false data in the declaration of assets and personal interests.
According to the Criminal Code, this crime shall be punished by a fine from 400 to 600 conventional units (one conventional unity equals 50 lei), amounting to over 1,000 euros (20,000 to 30,000 lei), or by imprisonment for up to one year. In both cases, the person shall be deprived of the right to hold certain positions or to complete a certain activity for a term of two to five years.
The finding act issued by the National Integrity Authority can be challenged in the administrative contentious court.
