The former head of the General Police Inspectorate Alexandru Pînzari, who also held the post of minister of defense and who was arrested in the case concerning the activity of employees of former Division No. 5 of the Inspectorate, said he didn’t break the law in this case and is ready to communicate with those who handle this case, IPN reports.
“I was aware of the “good intentions” of some of the persons interested in this case and I’m therefore not surprised. I just want to tell you that I answer for any of my actions and I’m responsible only for what I did, not for “what seems to someone”,” Alexandru Pînzari posted on Facebook through the agency of his family.
Alexandru Pînzari said no one should hurry to blame him and assess his activity as there are state institutions that should do their job and should not allow mistakes in such actions.
The Democratic Party (PDM) also reacted to the arrest of the ex-chief of the General Police Inspectorate. In a press release, the party says it condemns the attacks on the PDM vice president Alexandru Pînzari. According to the PDM, this is a professional, a patriot and a person who cares about the country. While serving as the chief of the General Police Inspectorate and of minister, he fought crime and took care of the country’s and citizens’ security.
“We consider that by his arrest, some of those who should fight stealing and corruption now try to please the new power,” wrote PDM, voicing hope that Alexandru Pânzari will enjoy a fair trial, as the people were promised in the recent election campaign.
The case featuring Alexandru Pînzari focuses on abuse of power, appropriation of state property, illegal crossing of the state border, disclosure of a state secret and falsification of public documents.
