Chisinau, 26 May /MOLDPRES/ - The MP of the Shor Party, Marina Tauber, today was stripped off parliamentary immunity. The lawmakers approved all the three applications by the acting Prosecutor General, Ion Munteanu. The applications regard offences dealing with local elections in Balti, as well as the organization of protests.
Ion Munteanu read, one after another, those three applications in the parliament’s plenum, after which the documents were put to vote. All those three approaches were considered in the absence of Marina Tauber.
According to the quoted source, the lawmaker is suspected of having deliberately accepted the financing of the electoral campaign on behalf of an organized crime ring led by Ilan Shor, falsification of the reports on the financing of the electoral campaign on the period of the local elections for the office of mayor of the Balti city, from November 2021.
While the MPs were considering the requests by the acting prosecutor general, Marina Tauber was at the Chisinau Court of Appeal, where her release from arrest was discussed. She came with more backers, who asked for her release.
In May 2022, Marina Tauber remained without parliamentary immunity. At that time, she was suspected of having participated as accomplice in the laundering of particularly large sums of money within an organized crime ring.
