The dean allegedly received a mobile phone and was allowed to rent a log cabin for settling an exam for one student, the police say. Though the student did not meet the criteria set by the lecturer, she passed, the police claims that it happened in February 2014, the TASR newswire reported.

“The accused professor demanded bribe and that accused woman provided it to him,” head of National Criminal Agency Daniel Goga said, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

The dean pushed also one of his subordinate colleagues to make student pass the exams who later reported it to police, according to public service STV.
