Court authorizes arrest of ex-Democrat Constantin Botnari

The Chisinau/Ciocana district court has issued a 30-day arrest warrant for Constantin Botnari, as requested by the Special Cases Prosecutor’s Office.

Botnari, a former lawmaker and secretary general of the Democratic Party, is sought in a case where he allegedly helped his boss, the fugitive oligarch Vlad Plahotniuc, and his associates get false passports and identities.

Today’s arrest warrant precedes the prosecutors’ intention to have Botnari placed on Interpol’s wanted list and subsequently seek his extradition from the UK.

Last Saturday, Botnari posted a video saying he is not hiding and is willing to cooperate with the investigation. However, he wants to be investigated in the UK as he thinks the case in Moldova has been started on the orders of his “political rivals that are today in government”.
