Suspended General Prosecutor of the Republic of Moldova Alexandr Stoianoglo received 30 days of house arrest
judgesThe members of the Chisinau Court, Ciocana headquarters, decided on Friday evening that the suspended general prosecutor, Alexandr Stoianoglo, was under house arrest for the next 30 days.
In his defense, Stoianoglo said he was innocent and would challenge tonight’s decision in court.
“The prosecutors did not present evidence except for some screenshots from the internet and from the newspapers “, Stoianoglo declared immediately after finding out the verdict.
He also said he would clarify the situation in the next 30 days of house arrest. Stoianoglo added that from day one he presented documents proving that they were nothing in common with accusations which are brought to him by the accuser.
Stoianoglo said that today’s decision is politically influenced and that the current government would like to be removed from office to politically capture state institutions.
On the other hand, the prosecutor investigating Stoianoglo’s case, Viorel Furtună, rejected the statements of the suspended general prosecutor and that he does not believe that the court will take other decisions in the case of Stoianoglo’s appeal.
“If there was not enough evidence, the court would not admit the approach, but the court did not apply the worst preventive measure, but applied the next one after the hierarchy. That is – house arrest. The rest of the measures are already milder. The court found that the greatest measure was not needed, but house arrest was sufficient. Home arrest without evidence cannot be applied“Storm declared,” quoted by Ziarul de Garda.
Stoianoglo was detained Tuesday night by anti-corruption prosecutors on several counts of abuse of office and corruption.
