EU Ambassador makes call to political forces of Moldova

The Head of the EU Delegation in Chisinau Peter Michalko called on the political forces of the Republic of Moldova not to use the practice of exerting pressure on people at the local and regional levels for political reasons or other interests. The call was made in the program “In Depth” on PRO TV Chisinau channel, IPN reports.

“In my opinion, it is very important in this electoral year to obey the standards of democracy, human rights and freedoms and I’m sure that a new level of political culture can be achieved and open, honest and equal political competition can exist without these phenomena of the past, related to criminal cases, pressure especially in the country that is in a difficult process of transition, with economic reforms and reforms with a social impact in which the people should feel that they live in a just society,” stated Peter Michalko.

The EU ambassador noted he is concerned about the information coming from Moldova’s regions about the fact that the people are subject to pressure over their political affiliation or the activity of mayors and local councilors. According to him, sometimes this information says the people risk losing their jobs. “The local bodies of the police and prosecution service are used and justice is involved. Criminal cases are started against them or other forms of pressure are used,” added Peter Michalko.

He noted that the respect for human rights, the fundamental freedoms and existence of free mass media form part of the conditions imposed by the EU for providing financial support. “It is important this year to continue the reform process for the country to go on and make progress and for better standards to be ensured for the people and the Republic of Moldova continues its good relations with the EU,” noted the official.

According to the European diplomat, a credible justice system should exist in the Republic of Moldova and very powerful political will and democracy are needed for this. The international partners offer assistance and support for the changes that should be made. “We also offer assistance in justice, for reforms and the law enforcement agencies. These reforms should be done, but it is important for this will to exist at the political level, which is the priority in doing reforms,” stated Peter Michalko.
