Moldova wins Energoalians case

The Court of Appeal of Paris ruled in favor of the Republic of Moldova in the case of the alleged debt for electrical energy supplied at the end of the 1990s. This is the so-called Energoalians case. This way, the state will not need to pay the claimed sum. The subject was discussed in the January 11 meeting of the Cabinet, IPN reports.

“It is a very old dispute. The Republic of Moldova faced an imminent risk of paying an exorbitant sum from the state budget. Ultimately, the Court of Appeal of Paris found that the Republic of Moldova’s position was correct as the debt in the case of this company wasn’t actually real. It was a conglomerate of circumstances in which particular oligarchic groups wanted, as they did earlier too, to profit and gain at the expense of the state budget. But they failed this time,” said Minister of Justice Sergiu Litvinenco.

Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilița noted that the current legislation provides advocacy companies are contracted only in the case of active disputes. But there are situations when the hiring of lawyers in advance enables to avoid particular arbitration or trials and allows the executive to sue particular players. In this regard, the Premier instructed to examine the legislation so that the state could protect the interests of the citizens when these are violated.
