Two days earlier, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Moldova summoned the ex-president to testify and present him with suspicions of participating in a scheme to steal public funds.
The investigation believes that in 2008, the management of Energocom, which is responsible for providing Moldova with electricity, entered into an agreement with employees of the Ministry of Economy, the National Energy Regulatory Agency and a number of people from abroad.
According to the prosecutor’s office, together they implemented a scheme that allowed the participants in the case to unreasonably overstate the purchase price of electricity and appropriate the difference.
In 2008, Dodon headed the Ministry of Economy of Moldova and was the country’s first deputy prime minister.
We will remind, earlier “Center Dossier” published an investigation, which said that working documents from the secretariat of intelligence general Vladimir Chernov (head of the presidential department for interregional and cultural relations with foreign countries) indicate that Igor Dodon called Moscow and transmitted the texts of his speeches for approval.
As pointed out by the “Dossier Center”, the ex-President of Moldova and his inner circle were under the “tight influence of the Kremlin.” In particular, in February 2019, three days before his speech at the Munich Security Conference, Dodon conveyed through the Russian Ambassador to Moldova Oleg Vasnetsov to General Chernov text of your speech and presentation of the “Big Package for Moldova” project.
