Chisinau, 2 September /MOLDPRES/ - A former deputy head of the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office will get on trial for three counts: passive corruption in particularly large amounts, abuse of power and interference with the doing of justice. The Prosecutor’s Office for Combating Organized Crime and Special Causes (PCCOCS) today informed that it had finished the criminal prosecution on this case and sent the file to court.    

According to the quoted source, the former defender would have claimed 50,000 euros from a convict in 2018. In exchange of this sum, the prosecutor was to re-name the actions and withdraw his charges in the file which was at that time pending at the Chisinau Court of Appeal, in which the convict was sentenced to 12 years of imprisonment for attempt of embezzling the alien wealth and money laundering.  

The sum would have been transmitted to the prosecutor in a pub in Chisinau by the convict’s concubine and as a result, the prosecutor formulated and submitted to the Chisinau Court of Appeal oral assertions contrary to his position earlier backed in the court of first instance and contrary to the stance of the prosecutor who supported the prosecution at the Chisinau Court of Appeal, giving up the initial charges and demanding the convict’s release from arrest.

Presently, the accused person no longer works in prosecution bodies and does not recognize his guilt. The former deputy head of the prosecutor’s office is prosecuted at large.
