The examination of the procedure regarding the suspension from office of Mirandolina Suşiţcaia, criminally investigated for illicit enrichment and abuse of office, was postponed. It happened because the meeting of the Superior Council of Prosecutors did not take place, due to a lack of quorum. Sușițcaia came under the scrutiny of law enforcement officers following the investigations of the Center for Investigative Journalism, which unmasked her involvement in the Laundromat file and her connections with the controversial businessman, Veaceslav Platon.
The request regarding the suspension of Mirandolina Sușițcaia has been previously formulated by the ex-interim General Prosecutor, Dumitru Robu. He requested the measure during the criminal investigation. On October 11, Sușițcaia requested the postponement of the case examination because her lawyer at that time was involved in a court case.
We remind you that last autumn Suşiţcaia was delegated from the Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office to another institution. The files in which Veaceslav Platon appears, including the file of the Russian Laundromat, were withdrawn from the prosecutor.
The Center for Investigative Journalism from Moldova (CIJM) published an investigation last year about how Mirandolina Suşiţcaia buried the Laundromat file. In the investigation it was also shown, with evidentiary documents, that the prosecutor avoided making information about the Laundromat available to the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry regarding the Russian laundromat, having in this regard the support of the General Prosecutor, Alexandr Stoianoglo.
A few days later, reporters from the Deschide.md portal caught Mirandolina Sușițcaia having a coffee with Mihail Gofman, the former deputy head of the Prevention and Combating of Money Laundering Service from National Anticorruption Center, in a restaurant in Chisinau.
Mihail Gofman would be the one who proposed the amendment to the Law on the Prevention and Combating of Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism. This would have served as a legal screen for money laundering in particularly large proportions through the courts and financial-banking institutions of the Republic of Moldova, scheme organized and implemented by Veaceslav Platon.
