Draft law proposed in Moldova Parliament to deprive ex-PM Vlad Filat of his deputy seat

The governing majority in the Parliament of Moldova proposes to deprive the imprisoned former Prime-Minister Vlad Filat of his seat in the legislative. A law in this sense was proposed in the juridical commission of the Parliament on December 9th, reports Deschide.md.

The head of the juridical commission, Democrat Raisa Apolschi, commented for Deschide that the majority has premises to deprive Filat of the deputy seat, since a decision of the Constitutional Court stipulates the execution function of definitive decisions, such as in ex-PM`s case.

“The General Prosecution Office asked for the removal of the impunity, the Office respectively has the obligation to inform us when is final decision, which it did. Furthermore, the Parliament would only have to take the decision that are imposed”, explained Apolschi.

Former Liberal-Democrat Prime-Minister, Vlad Filat, was arrested on October 15th 2015 for allegations of passive corruption and traffic influence towards the then businessman and now mayor of Orhei, Ilan Shor. On June 27th 2016, he was condemned to nine years of closed imprisonment by the Court Buiucani of Chişinău, decision reinforced by the Appeal Court of Chişinău on November 11th.
