Former President of the Republic of Moldova, Petru Lucinschi, was summoned on Friday, September 27, at the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office, where he was accused of being part of an "organized criminal group". The former head of state considers the accusation illegal and devoid of any legal support, which he vehemently rejected, IPN reports.
"The fact that this information is widely spread gives the impression that they are looking for “high profile names”, as Slusari put it, instead of trying to bring back the money into the country". I reject any accusation and once again declare that I have never taken or voted for any credit from "Unibank", I have never received dividends, nor do I have an account at this bank. Moreover, I have never set foot in this institution”, mentions Petru Lucinschi in a statement for the press.
The former president claims that he will cooperate with the investigation, and in the coming days he will present information confirming his innocence. "The actions convinced me, once again, that these are orchestrated attacks on my family. They started with a case fabricated on order against my son Sergiu, in Romania, continued on another son Chiril (his case is well known) and now it’s my turn. The purpose is to denigrate me and tarnish my image. However, I am convinced that the truth, sooner or later, will come out”, mentions Petru Lucinschi.
