The Chisinau Court, Centre Headquarters, partially upheld the summons filed by ex-Socialist deputy Ghenadi Mitriuc against the National Integrity Authority (ANI). Specifically, points 1, 2, and 3 of one of the findings issued in his name in August 2021, which referred to the incompatibility of functions, were annulled. Anticoruptie.md revealed that during the November 2016 presidential election campaign, Mitriuc transferred over 70,000 lei to the electoral account of the PSRM competitor, Igor Dodon. Additionally, CIJM journalists reported that he owned eight plots of land in the city of Ungheni, all obtained during his two mandates as a city councilor, and six buildings, including an apartment, a house, a commercial space, a garage, and a holiday home on the shores of the Black Sea in the Odesa region, Belgorod-Dnistrovsk district, with a declared cadastral value of 250,001 lei.

In May 2023, the National Integrity Authority (ANI) issued another finding in the name of the former socialist deputy, which was later contested by Mitriuc. Based on a notification, ANI discovered a substantial difference between the income and expenses of Ghenadi Mitriuc during his tenure as a deputy in the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova, representing the Socialist Party. In 2017, the former socialist deputy allegedly acquired assets exceeding 20 average salaries in the economy, a difference of over 286,000 lei.

The notification's author also mentioned donations Mitriuc made starting in 2014 to the PSRM account, which were reported by the press.

According to the material published by anticoruptie.md, during the November 2016 presidential election campaign, Mitriuc donated 73,350 lei to Igor Dodon's campaign. Additionally, the deputy contributed 52,000 lei to the socialists' accounts for the referendum to dismiss the mayor of Chisinau, Dorin Chirtoacă, and 26,600 lei for the local elections for the Chisinau City Hall for the PSRM candidate, Ion Ceban.

Although Ghenadi Mitriuc was summoned to present supporting information regarding the possible substantial difference identified by the integrity inspector between the assets acquired and the incomes earned, he did not respond to the invitation. Consequently, ANI ordered through the court the collection of the value of the unjustified property for the benefit of the state or its confiscation.

In his last annual declaration for the fiscal year 2022, Ghenadi Mitriuc reported income from a high salary from the Ungheni District Council, totaling over 233,000 lei, interest from two commercial banks, and 129,000 lei from renting out a means of transport. The former deputy also declared ownership of eight plots of land, three apartments (one of which was inherited), and a house. Mitriuc also stated that he owns five cars, a truck, and a trailer. Furthermore, he manages the activities of two companies based in the municipality of Ungheni.
