The prosecutor’s office of Moldova, in a conversation with Izvestia, did not confirm the information about the detention of the country’s ex-president Igor Dodon.
They will give for the current: will Igor Dodon be sent to prison
Why was the former President of Moldova prosecuted?
The fact that the former leader of the republic was detained for 72 hours was reported by the media earlier on May 24.
At the same time, the representative of the country’s Prosecutor General’s Office, Marianna Kerpek, spoke about the searches in the house of the former president of Moldova.
According to Vlad Batryncha, the executive secretary of the Socialist Party, of which Dodon is the honorary chairman, searches at the ex-leader of Moldova are taking place because the authorities of the republic are fighting the opposition. Batryncha called the incident a cheap show.
Earlier, on May 18, a representative of the Prosecutor General’s Office stated that a criminal case had been opened against Dodon, the ex-leader of the republic was suspected of corruption. She explained that Acting Attorney General Dumitru Robu ordered a criminal prosecution because of the videos that appeared in the public space in the summer of 2020.
The video, which the representative of the Prosecutor General’s Office spoke about, was made on a hidden camera in June 2019. On it, at that time, the leader of the Democratic Party, oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc, discussed with Dodon the situation in the country after the parliamentary elections. Plahotniuc then tried to give the former head of Moldova a black package, which, presumably, contained money. Dodon then refused to accept the bribe.
