Gherman Gorbunţov: Allegation against Vlad Plahotniuc was false and challenge set by Renato Usatîi



The accusation against PDM leader Vlad Plahotniuc by the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation is false news and Renato Usatîi touched his hands in this case, declared by one of persons supposed to figure this file, Gherman Gorbunţov.

The Russian banker is sure that the person misleading the public opinion is Renato Usatîi .

“Honestly, I can not comment on the news I read in the morning, it’s strange, because I did not file anything. Actually, I addressed a file three years ago, but I was refused. I don’t know how to comment on this case. It’s evident that Usatîi was involved in this misinformation. I know 200% that Plahotniuc has nothing to do with the assassination.

“Moreover, I didn’t file anything at the Investigation Committee after receiving that refusal. What’s going on now, honestly, I can not comment, “said Russian banker Gherman Gorbunţov.

The information about Vlad Plahotniuc is being investigated for racial, political, ideological and ethnic hatred was published today by the site, which referred to a source within the Investigative Committee. The news author declared that one of persons figuring that file was Gherman Gorbunțov.

– Why did those declarations appear on the Russian press?

Gherman Gorbunțov assured Usatîi stood behind the drama:

– I think those were related to my visit to Moldova. I guess Mr. Usatîi has been activated.

The assassination of Gherman Gorbuntov took place in London in 2012. Gorbuntov said he was pursuing the investigation and hoped for justice.

– Have you been to the Moldovan Prosecutor’s Office?

– Of course, I’m sorry that the investigation is going in another direction. It’s clear that Usatîi defends his life because he doesn’t want prison. It’s very unpleasant to be in the position of a ping-pong ball.

The Russian banker is currently in London. Last week he was in Moldova and was interrogated by prosecutors.

According to Spanish RTVC, the vessel started from Turkey to South America and then crossed the Atlantic Ocean in early October.

According to IP Captaincy of Giurgiulesti Port, the ship “BREATH” was provisionally recorded in the State Register of Vessels of the Republic of Moldova and is currently in the process of issuing documents for permanent registration.

At the time of provisional registration of the ship, the competent institutions verified the vessel’s history, the shipowner’s identity, and because there were no suspicions, the ship was accepted for provisional registration.

This was to be submitted to the flag state inspectors for examination before permanent registration.

“Such crimes do not depend on the ship’s flag but are committed by the ship’s crew and largely without the shipowner or the owner being aware of these illegal activities,” the institution said.

IP Captain of Giurgiulesti Port specified that the Republic of Moldova will not be sanctioned internationally, as the flag state is not responsible for the commercial activity of the shipowners under its flag.
