Prosecutors demand absentee arrest of Vladimir Plahotniuc


The anti-corruption prosecutor’s office appealed to Chisinau court with a request to issue a mandate for a preliminary arrest of 30 days for the former leader of the Democratic Party Vladimir Plahotniuc. This was said on October 10 by the head of the department, Viorel Morari, adding that the decision of the prosecutor’s office was due to the fact that Plahotniuc did not appear for interrogation scheduled for October 9, Newsmaker.md writes.

“We know that the lawyers have a connection with citizen Plahotniuc and he could appear for questioning, however, he did not do this,” he added.

According to the head of the Anti-corruption Prosecutor's Office, two more suspects have already been detained.

Recall that on October 8, the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office called Plahotniuc for questioning, posting a message about it on its Facebook page.

In their appeal, the prosecutors demanded that Plahotniuc appear at the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office on October 9.

However, the next day, Plahotniuc’s lawyer Vladislav Rosca asked the prosecutor's office to postpone the interrogation, saying that Plahotniuc would be able to appear at the hearing in three weeks, Newsmaker.md reports.
