Moreover, Usatii said that if he comes to power, he will make Halupa to say what he wants to. “Halupa, If I were like Plahotniuc, you would be arrested here, in Russia, and you would say all the truth. Think about what you are doing, Mr. Halupa” said Usatii.

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.
