The PAS leader Maia Sandu’s request to be questioned in a public meeting by the parliamentary commission of inquiry into the circumstances of the presupposed interference by the Foundation “Otwarty Dialog” block the hearings, said Speaker of Parliament Andrian Candu. In a post on a social networking site, Andrian Candu asks Maia Sandu if she does this to avoid questions based on the accumulated evidence.
The Speaker noted the hearings cannot be public because the information provided by the national and foreign institutions are confidential in character and have a legal utilization regime. If the meeting is open, the MPs and members of the commission would break the law and would be held accountable.
Andrian Candu said it would be right for Maia Sandu to come to the hearings, to answer the questions and to then make statements for the press. He assured he will make effort for the report to be declassified and made public when the inquiry is completed so that the citizens know the important information collected by the commission.
The leader of the Party “Action and Solidarity” (PAS) Maia Sandu refused to make statements in the hearings staged by the parliamentary commission of inquiry behind closed doors and demanded to be summoned to a public meeting. The politician stated the intentionally disseminated lies, including by MPs, about the financing of the PAS should be revealed also in Parliament and also publicly. Parliament postponed the hearings set for November 6 until November 12.
A group of Democratic MPs sent letters to a number of state institutions, seeking investigations into the possible activities against the Republic of Moldova staged by Ludmila Kozlowska, who holds Russian and Ukrainian nationalities and who was recently expelled from Poland and the EU for links with the Russian intelligence services, and of the Foundation “Otwarty Dialog”, and into the ties of the Foundation and its founder with the parties PAS and PPDA, including possible aspects of illegal financing or provision of benefits to the given parties. The parliamentary commission of inquiry started work on November 2.
