Protesters near the courthouse in Chisinau demand the release of imprisoned members of the Shor party

KISINAU, September 4 – RIA Novosti. RIA Novosti correspondent reported that supporters and representatives of the Moldovan opposition party “Shor” protested on Sunday at the building of the Chisinau district court, where the restraining measure was being considered for two representatives of the political force detained on Friday.

The demonstrators demand the resignation of the president, prime minister and the entire Moldovan government, and the release of detainees, including the political party’s vice-president, Marina Tauber.

Protesters shouted “Liberty!”, “Resign!”, “Down with Maia Sandu!”

“The political prosecution against the opposition continues. Today we are considering the request of the prosecutor’s office to extend the detention period of two of our colleagues who were detained on Friday. This is a demonstration, an attempt to intimidate the opposition. Authorities are afraid of mass protests, that’s why they are trying to interrupt the protest movement in such a repressive way,” he said. .

On Friday, the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office announced that two people were detained for 72 hours after a search was conducted at one of dissident Shor’s land organizations.

On the same day, supporters and representatives of the political power held a mass protest rally with a picket near the presidential administration and the National Anti-Corruption Center building.

In July, the Moldovan Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office searched the homes of activists and supporters of the Shor party in case of illegal financing, after which the parliament deprived Tauber, vice-president of the Tauber political party, of parliamentary immunity. and was detained for 30 days on 23 July. Members and supporters of the political force declare the political nature of the case in the context of the opposition’s persecution.

The Shor party was the only political force that officially supported the anti-government protests of the Communists and Socialists Bloc. In June, the party gathered more than 40,000 demonstrators in Chisinau’s main square, expressing their dissatisfaction with the current government. Ilan Shor, the leader of the political force who left the country after a corruption scandal in 2019, has called on his supporters to continue the protests until Tauber’s release and the resignation of the current government.
