Il sindaco di Bucarest è stato arrestato con l’accusa di corruzione

The mayor of Romania’s capital, Sorin Oprescu, has been arrested at home in an investigation into allegations of taking bribes.
Now serving his second term as Bucharest mayor, Mr Oprescu is accused of taking kickbacks from companies awarded contracts with the city.
Prosecutors allege he took a 10% cut from deals. He denies any wrongdoing.
It is the latest of several corruption scandals to engulf top political figures in Romania.
Mr Oprescu, 63, who is backed by Romania’s governing Social Democrats, was taken into custody for an initial 24 hours.
