The Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office (APO) said the actions of the suspended prosecutor general Alexandr Stoianoglo, following a request made by former MP Inga Grigoriu, will be further examined by the prosecutor assigned by the Superior Council of Prosecutors, Andrei Balan, IPN reports.
By an order made by the acting chief prosecutor of APO, the request to be replaced made by the designated prosecutor was rejected as groundless.
Last week, the SCP designated prosecutor Andrei Balan to investigate the alleged illegalities committed by the suspended prosecutor general Alexandr Stoianoglo in the case of the expulsion of Turkish teachers, which were invoked by ex-MP Inga Grigoriu, who stated that those who kidnapped the Turkish teachers were freed from punishment, while Stoianoglo didn’t take attitude”. The lawyers for Stoianoglo said the Superior Council of Prosecutors’ decision surprises by ignorance and lack of analysis of the ECHR judgment of June 2019. According to them, their client from the start expresses his regret at the expulsion of the autumn of 2018 and reiterates that it is regrettable that Moldova was unable to defend the fundamental rights of the Turkish teachers.
