Marina Tauber and Ilan Shor were again stripped of their immunity. As Ilan Shor, Marina Tauber is suspected of money laundering and swindle. Acting Prosecutor General Dumitru Robu assured that this time there was enough evidence to bring both cases to court. Tauber, though, called what was happening a political massacre. Marina Tauber was questioned on 27 May by prosecutors of the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office and charged. The MP was not placed under provisional arrest but was banned from leaving the country for 60 days
As Ilan Șor, Marina Tauber is suspected of money laundering and swindle. According to Dumitru Robu, the members of the organized criminal group led by Ilan Shor, being assisted in their criminal activities by other persons, including Marina Tauber, used the money obtained illegally to extend their possessions in the Republic of Moldova and other states, while the burden of the financial responsibility was placed on the national public budget.
In her speech, Marina Tauber said that what happened in 2014 was the most cynical offense at state level for which all those who took decisions to provide emergency loans to Banca de Economii, Banca Sociala and Unibank under state guarantees should answer. “I said it earlier and repeat – I do not intend to run away, even if I shall probably do it. I’m 100% sure that the case was fabricated and the accusations are unsubstantiated, but I will not give you the pleasure of seeing me criticized by the press and blamed for deciding to hide. I will not hide even if I know that you expected this. I will fight against this injustice and will win,” stated the MP.
Earlier, the MPs voted to lift the parliamentary immunity of Ilan Șor. In the first half of 2012, Ilan Șor decided to constitute an organized criminal group for stealing money from Moldova’s banking system for financing economic activities in the country and outside it. The acting prosecutor general also said that there are reasonable suspicions that in 2012-2013, on the pretext of remedying the situation at Banca de Economii, Ilan Șor stole large sums of money from BEM. Ilan Șor and other persons used the money to purchase real estate in the country and abroad, placing the burden on the national public budget.
