The vice-president of Criuleni district, Oleg Ogor, was dismissed, on Friday, with 18 votes of the local councilors. Along with him, the head of the Education Department of the district, Ala Ungureanu, and the head of the Finance Department, Olga Simon, were also dismissed. All three were targeted in the journalistic materials carried out by the Center of Investigative Journalism in Moldova (CIJM).

The dismissal of the second vice-president Roman Onica was also included in the agenda of Friday's meeting of the Criuleni District Council, but no vote was reached for his dismissal.

We remind you that on May 21, ANI established the violation of the legal regime of incompatibilities by the vice president of Criuleni district, Roman Onica. He was in a state of incompatibility, starting with December 2019, as he exercised for several months the position of vice president of the district simultaneously with the mandate of councilor in one of the local councils of Criuleni district.

On July 16, ANI found a violation of the legal regime of incompatibilities by the vice president of Criuleni district, Oleg Ogor. The case was reported by the anticoruptie.md portal on June 1, following a notification on the Corruption Map. The integrity inspectors established that between December 2019 and March 2020, Oleg Ogor held two public positions at the same time, which is contrary to the legislation in force - the mandate of district vice president and of councilor in the Criuleni district council.

The anticorruptie.md portal also signaled the incompatibility of the positions admitted by Ala Ungurean, who for almost three months, in addition to the position of head of the Education Department, also held the mandate of district councilor. The anticoruptie.md portal recently published an investigation showing that during the state of emergency, while he was vice-president of Criuleni district, Oleg Ogor managed to attract 170,000 lei from his district's reserve fund on his company’s account, for accommodation of frontline doctors in a camp owned by him.

The investigation also included Olga Simon, a person from Oleg Ogor's entourage, whom he helped to repair his personal car from the district budget.
