A control conducted since February by the Finance Ministry's Economic Inspection at the Bucharest City Hall has revealed law violations in every investigated aspect, Finance Minister Florin Citu wrote on Facebook, according to Agerpres.
"As promised! In February, the Finance Ministry's Economic Inspection started a control at the Bucharest City Hall. The Bucharest Municipality had been 'bypassed' for many years by such controls. The control was interrupted during the state of emergency but is finalized now. I will present more details in my weekly press statements at the Ministry headquarters. Until then, I can tell you that the law has been broken in every aspect investigated by the Finance Ministry," Citu said.
He also informed that the Economic Inspection is currently checking five municipal companies, and that all these entities are in for verification.
"I promised you that I will put an end to public money squandering and theft in all public institutions. That's what I'll do," Florin Citu assures.
Last week, after a meeting with Bucharest Mayor-elect Nicusor Dan and with Prime Minister Ludovic Orban, the Finance Minister said that the Capital City Hall is in a dire financial situation, and later informed that on September 30 the Bucharest Municipality had 10.8 million lei in its account.
