Moldovan prosecutors visited Turkey and discussed with their colleagues issues related to the stay in Istanbul of ex-leader of the Democratic Party Vladimir Plahotniuc. Prosecutor General Alexander Stoyanoglo told about this on the air of the program Puterea a patra on the N4 TV channel. Stoyanoglo also told why he is not going to resign, can Ilan Shor return to Moldova without hindrance, what will happen to Gheorghe Kavkalyuk when he arrives in Chisinau, and what is wrong with the Laundromat case, newsmaker reports.
Plahotniuc, according to the Prosecutor General, is in Turkey, despite the fact that Ankara informed Chisinau in 2020 that Plahotniuc was not there. In addition, Stoyanoglo claims that Plahotniuc was unable to obtain Turkish citizenship. The Prosecutor General said that a few weeks ago, Moldovan prosecutors were in Turkey and “discussed” some issues about Plahotniuc with their Turkish colleagues. According to him, the parties have a “preliminary agreement”.
Stoyanoglo admits that Plahotniuc’s influence may remain in the Moldovan prosecutor’s office. He recalled that in 2019 he asked prosecutors with a dubious reputation to resign, but some of them remained to work in the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office.
