The Ministry of Justice provided clarifications regarding the extradition case of Cristian Rizea from the Republic of Moldova to Romania, in order to enforce the sentence of the Romanian courts. According to the Ministry of Justice, after receiving the extradition request from the Romanian authorities, the Ministry of Justice sent, on November 23, 2020, to the Chisinau Court the extradition request of Cristian Rizea, for examination.

Nine court hearings have been held in the Chisinau District Court on this case. Most of the time, however, they were postponed at the request of Cristian Rizea’s lawyers. The next extradition hearing is scheduled for January 28, 2022. Cristian Rizea challenged in administrative litigation the Presidential Decree on the withdrawal of citizenship of the Republic of Moldova. At the same time, he addressed two separate requests to the President and the Office of Migration and Asylum of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, requesting the granting of asylum on the territory of the Republic of Moldova.

Rizea became known to the general public in the Republic of Moldova at the end of last spring, when he launched into politics with the NOI party. He later began recording videos and sharing so-called "revelations" on social media, after which he was repeatedly denounced for defamation.

Cristian Rizea was the subject of an investigation by the Moldovan Investigation Center on how he bought a luxury building in a select neighborhood in Chisinau. In an interview, Rizea said he obtained Moldovan citizenship due to the fact that his grandmother is from the village of Congaz, Comrat district.
