2nd richest Romanian arrested on charges he bribed 2 judges to rule in insolvency cases

BUCHAREST, Romania - Romania's second-richest businessman has been arrested on charges that he bribed judges to rule in his favour in court cases.

Anti-corruption prosecutors say Dan Adamescu instructed his lawyer and others to pay bribes of 20,000 euros ($27,200) to two judges in Dec. 2013 over several insolvency cases involving his companies. The judges were arrested earlier on charges of taking bribes.

Prosecutors said Adamescu's lawyer provided information about the case.

Adamescu owns the Otel Galati football club, the influential Romania Libera newspaper, an insurance company and a shopping centre in Bucharest. Reports estimate he was worth 950 million euros last year.

In May the lawyer reportedly threw himself in front of a subway train after the judges' arrest.
