Chisinau, 20 August /MOLDPRES/ - Moldova’s parliament, following more hours of discussions, questions and answers, at a today’s meeting, adopted with 57 fors a decision on the findings of the parliamentary hearings on the progress of the actions in the process of recovery of the financial means purloined from the banking system.
“It is found out that the responsibility for the organization and ensuring of efficient measures as to the process of recovery of the financial means purloined from the banking system lies with the Prosecutor General’s Office and the National Anticorruption Centre.
