Alexandr Stoianoglo suspected of unjust enrichment and money laundering

Suspended prosecutor general Alexandr Stoianoglo will be also investigated for unjust enrichment and money laundering that he allegedly committed in 2014-2015. The Superior Council of Prosecutors entrusted the designated prosecutor Victor Furtuna with the task of investigating the given offenses.

Contacted by IPN for details, Mariana Cherpec, press officer of the Prosecutor General’s Office, said Victor Furtuna was empowered to probe the newly identified circumstances and to decide if there are reasonable suspicions about the commission of the aforementioned offenses.

Depending on the resuts of the investigation, within 30 days Victor Furtuna will decide whether to take legal action or not.

Alexandr Stoianoglo was arrested last October and was subsequently placed under house arrest on charges of abuse of office, bribery, perjury, and facilitation of an organized criminal group. The investigation into abuse of office was completed. The suspended prosecutor general denies any wrongdoing.

At end-May, the Superior Council of Prosecutors proposed that President Maia Sandu should fire Alexandr Stoianoglo from the post of prosecutor general from which he was suspended. The Council took such a decision after familiarizing itself with the report of the expert commission that assessed Stoianoglo’s performance as “unsatisfactory”. President Sandu hasn’t yet taken a decision. At the start of June, the European Court of Human Rights communicated the two complaints filed by Alexandr Stoianoglo to the Government of the Republic of Moldova as a matter of urgency.
