From Plahotniuc to Moldasig, via Gibraltar. New details about a business of over 500,000,000 lei // RISE Moldova

Published

RISE Moldova has offered new details about the business of over 500,000,000 lei through which 3 buildings owned by Finpar Invest SRL – the oldest company of the oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc, were sold last year to an offshore in Gibraltar.

Shortly after that transaction, one of the buildings – a historic townhouse in the immediate vicinity of Parliament – was taken over by Real Group Imobil, a joint stock company in the Republic of Moldova, the owner of whom was unknown at that time.

Last week, Real Group Imobil made its first activity report public. The document shows that the company has a share capital of almost 55,000,000 lei and is fully owned by the Moldasig insurance company.

Moldasig was part of a number of companies controlled by controversial banker Veaceslav Platon. Platon’s business empire in Moldova began to shake, especially in 2016, when he was arrested. Subsequently, in 2018, he was finally convicted of 18 years of jail for scam and money laundering.

At present, about 80% of the insurance company’s shares are sold for only 15,000,000 lei.

RISE states that the potential buyer of the majority stake of 65% – auctioned with nearly 12,000,000 lei, will control Moldasig and its properties, including the villa near the Parliament, valued, along with the related land, at about 59,000,000 lei!

In the last year’s Finpar Invest real estate transaction, a 10 ha plot near the Chisinau North Bus Station was also involved.

It is about the same Moldasig, which in the meantime took over the villa near Parliament, and Asito, of which Veaceslav Platon controlled 83% of the shares, a package he claimed to have bought in 2011 from Vlad Plahotniuc – oligarch, Democratic Party leader, and usurper of the Moldovan state – as Maia Sandu calls him.

Maia Sandu asks the magistrates of the Moldovan Constitutional Court to submit their resignation letters

Published

on

PM Maia Sandu was disturbed by the communiqué issued by the Constitutional Court. The report issued by the CC said that the reason for the annulment of the decisions taken on 7-9 June is “the situation in the Republic of Moldova, especially the announcement of the transfer of power to the Government of Sandu and the coalition formed in the Parliament Republic of Moldova”. Note that three of the six magistrates of the Constitutional Court come from the Democratic Party.

“The judges of the Constitutional Court continue their delirium, nationally and internationally shaming the institution they represent. In essence, the Court, rather than recognizing that it participated in the desperate attempt of the Democratic Party to maintain its power unlawfully, justifies its decision only by the fact that this is the situation at present in the Republic of Moldova. I call this approach inappropriate from the perspective of respect for the Supreme State Law. The Constitutional Court must adopt acts in accordance with the provisions of the letter and spirit of the Constitution, and not based on the decisions and behavior of the political actors in the country. At the same time, I ask the judges of the Court to submit their resignations immediately if they still have a little honor and respect for the Constitution of the Republic of Moldova and the citizens of this country,” says Maia Sandu.

Romanian Judge Cristi Danileţ, a former member of the Superior Council of Magistracy in Romania, claims that the decision of the Constitutional Court on the cancellation of the judgments issued on 7-9 June is legally unprecedented.

Previously, the Constitutional Court ruled by Plahotniuc, declared unconstitutional the election of the leadership of the Moldovan Parliament and the vote of the new Government, and later instituted the interim president, after having previously decided that the deadline for a new government to vote was 7 June 2019, not June 9, as previously mentioned in the public space. These decisions have given rise to a number of criticisms and, at the request of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Thorbjorn Jagland, the Venice Commission was due to comment on the decisions taken by the CC next week.

At present, 1189 prisoners in the country or every fifth convict, are serving their sentences for sex offenses.

Reminder: In every case of rape, prosecutors plead for deprivation of aggressors’ freedom, requiring the court to convict them to maximum punishment, provided by the national law and in line with the ECHR doctrines.

Recently, two inhabitants from the Briceni district have been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment in a closed penitentiary. It has been decided after the prosecutors have shown evidence on their crime of sexual abuse of their neighbors, who were underage girls.
