The commission of inquiry for elucidating the accusations of interference by the Foundation “Otwarty Dialog” and its founder Ludmila Kozlowska made public a part of the questions to which the PAS leader Maia Sandu and PPPDA leader Andrei Năstase were to answer, but these refused to come to discussions. The commission had a meeting in the evening of November 14 and chairman Igor Vremea enumerated the non-confidential questions to which the two politicians were to provide answers, IPN reports.
According to Igor Vremea, the commission of inquiry finalized and approved the report on its activity and inserted all the conclusions and recommendations of the commission members into it. The Parliament’s Standing Bureau is to decide the method of presenting the report. Maia Sandu and Andrei Năstase didn’t appear at the hearings, but made public statements, including concerning the commission. “We wanted to discuss a part of the themes with the invitees, but we regrettably remained without answers,” stated the MP.
The chairman also said that Maia Sandu and Andrei Năstase were to answer questions about their ties with the Foundation “Otwarty Dialog” and would have been presented public information and evidence that made them hold the hearings behind closed doors. “We wanted to get particular answers from the first source, including to confidential questions,” noted Igor Vremea.
He said the commission would have asked Maia Sandu and Andrei Năstase if they became involved as hybrid war instruments of the Russian intelligence services consciously or unconsciously; when and in what circumstances they got aquatinted with Ludmila Kozlowska; if they were helped by persons involved in the theft of the US$ 1 billion, such as Vlad Filat and Veaceslav Platon etc. The commission would have informed the politicians that eventual cooperation with “Otwarty Dialog”, which is suspected of involvement in subversive actions against Moldova and other European states, would be against the law and would be classed as treason.
According to Igor Vremea, the conclusions and recommendations of the report, if they are supported by Parliament, will be remitted to the law enforcement agencies.
