The Mayor of Constanta Radu Mazare, currently in custody in the case where he is charged with bribery, resigned from his position on Friday, May 22.
Mazare allegedly took a EUR 9 million bribe to help some companies get authorizations, according to prosecutors. He submitted his resignation to the City Council and City Hall through a handwritten letter.
“My desire to do good to the city and its inhabitants does not justify the injustices, distress and anguish to which I was subjected for so long, for which I resign as mayor of Constanta,” according to the letter, reports local Mediafax.
