Two months after the Council for Preventing and Eliminating Discrimination and Ensuring Equality found that socialist MP Oleg Savva incited to discrimination in terms of gender, professional status and national origin when he attacked verbally on a social network, Mariana Colun, reporter of the Center for Investigative Journalism, and forced him to apologize publicly, the official defies the law. So far, the Socialist MP did not apologize, though public authority obliges him. Head of the Non-Discrimination Council Ian Feldman ordered starting the case monitoring procedure.

Ian Feldman told Anticoruptie.md that so far Oleg Savva did not contest the act of the Non-Discrimination Council, so he has to execute it.  "Currently, we have no prior request filed with us. Perhaps it is left somewhere in the courts. We do not have any contestation filed by him”, said  Feldman.

"If the Council's decision was contested, its effect shall be suspended until it becomes definitive. If the decision was not contested, then the deputy violated the decision, and in this case the Council, as the official examiner, should draw up a report on the offense and send it to the court, which in turn, shall request the Prosecutor General to submit a motion to the Parliament to order the lifting of parliamentary immunity", said the lawyer Sergiu Bozianu.

We remind that the MP Oleg Savva appeared to be unhappy with an article targeting him, naming the reporter "liar", "raff," and "illiterate girl." Savva also threatened the journalist with a trial and a physical harassment. "We can also attack! You should know that we will retaliate to any "attack" against the Socialists", the MP wrote on his Facebook page.

"Still you cannot calm down... I have already sent a prior request. ... give up, anyway no one will vote for your moral monsters. Read the article ... written by an illiterate girl. And not a single legislative initiative has been withdrawn by me. Liar!!!!! And you write that these initiatives also target the combatants in the transnistrian region. Explain to these veterans what you have against them", wrote Oleg Savva."You raff, lousy  journalists",  writes  the socialist MP about Mariana Colun and the journalist Vasile Năstase, host of "60 minutes" show  on Jurnal TV.

The verbal abuse of socialist MP Oleg Savva got worse. He reiterated that he did not deny his words. "Because of journalists like them, journalism is called the second oldest profession on earth. And we know that they are paid by the West and they continue to destroy this state, Republic of Moldova !!! ", wrote the MP in a Facebook post. The Socialist went ahead, by threatening the journalist with physical aggression. "We can also attack! You should know that we will retaliate to any "attack" against the Socialists", commented the MP." You will speak Romanian in your homeland, Romania", wrote Oleg Savva.
