Leader of Moldovan opposition party “Shor” accuses Deputy Prime Minister Spina of hidden income
KISINAU, 1 October – RIA Novosti. Ilan Shor, leader of the Shor Party, an opposition party in Moldova, has released documents that, according to him, testify to the hidden million-dollar income of the country’s Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Spinu.
Earlier, the politician announced on social networks that he filed a complaint about Spina with the Prosecutor General’s Office, accusing him of making secret income. The Deputy Prime Minister herself denies these accusations, and the republic’s president, Maia Sandu, has said in the media that Spinu was making his money legally in business before he even came to government.
On Saturday, Shor announced on his pages that he had published an excerpt from a Hong Kong bank account on behalf of the Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister. The document shows that the account of the company Shor claims to belong to Spin had $13.8 million as of September 1, 2022, after which another $2 million was transferred to OCBC bank Wing Hang on September 19.
“As I promised, I’m presenting evidence regarding Spinu. This is a bank statement taken from the account of one of his companies. Next week will be hot. More revelations will come about corrupt officials around the president. I have advice to Sandu. He got the prosecution: Instead of counting sandwiches, It would be better if they counted the money he saved for Maya for Spin,” Shor wrote on social networks.
The leader of the “Shor” party is outside of Moldova, as he awaits imprisonment in his homeland. With the Action and Solidarity Party coming to power, the politician was deprived of parliamentary immunity, especially on suspicions of large-scale money laundering and fraud.
The Shor party has been holding protests in the center of Chisinau for the second week. Demonstrators are angered by the unprecedented rise in gas, other energy sources and food prices, as well as high inflation and falling living standards. The protesters, who blamed the authorities for not being able to cope with the crisis, point to record inflation in the last 20 years, reaching 33.5% year-on-year in mid-summer. The country’s leadership has been criticized for its reluctance to negotiate better gas prices with Russia and for political pressure on opposition representatives.
