Chisinau, 21 July /MOLDPRES/ - Anticorruption officers and prosecutors have found out more episodes of illegal financing of the Shor Political Party by an organized crime ring.   

According to the National Anticorruption Centre (CNA), the formation would have consciously accepted money of dubious origin, used in party interest, as well as fees for artists, salaries for members and organization of protests. The money of the crime ring was reaching Moldova in form of transfers and conversions, including in crypto-currency, and to hide the origin of the financial means, diverse financing channels were used, such as Dubai, Vienna, Monaco.  

Prosecutors documented more episodes in which, in the first half of this year, the party would have made payments worth 600,000 euros, while the reported expenses were amounting to over 228,000 lei (about 11,400 euros). Monthly salaries to party members worth 100,000 euros would have been paid from the same sources and over 3.5 million lei would have been used for the carriage of participants in the protests on the Great National Assembly Square. At the same time, the party indicated financing with 1.7 million lei for the first half of the 2022 year.  

Anticorruption officers and prosecutors today made searches in more locations on this case. The criminal prosecution actions continue, in order to strengthen the evidence.
