Ex-president of Moldova Dodon placed under house arrest for another month

Former Moldovan President Dodon was sent under house arrest for another month

Former Moldovan President Igor Dodon, who was placed under house arrest almost a month ago, will spend under restrictions another 30 days. The court in Chisinau on Tuesday evening extended the preventive measure. Dodon wrote about this on his Facebook.

– As expected, the “reformed” PDS justice extended house arrest for another 30 days … Today's court decision will be challenged in the Appeals Chamber. Thanks to all the supporters for their support. I promise I will! he said.

According to the former leader, prosecutors expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that he lives under the same roof with his wife, who is also charged. Igor Dodon complained about the pressure on him and his relatives, including his wife's brother.

Igor Dodon was detained on May 24, ironically, on the 50th anniversary of the current president, Maia Sandu. The ex-head of state is accused of passive corruption, illegal enrichment, treason and financing of a political party by a criminal organization. The accusations are related to the so-called “bag” case, which was handed over to him by the oligarch and ex-leader of the Democratic Party Vladimir Plahotniuc in 2019. On May 26, Dodon was placed under house arrest for 30 days. On June 13, he stated that his wife Galina Dodon had also become a suspect.

Igor Dodon and Maia Sandu were the main contenders in the Moldovan presidential elections in 2016 and 2020. Dodon is called a pro-Russian politician, and Sandu is a pro-European one.
