Parliament’s Standing Commission on Economy, Budget and Finance today examined a number of privatization and concession deals. As a result, Commission chair Igor Munteanu says Parliament will be asked tomorrow to authorize a full-fledged audit of such deals concluded during 2013-2019.
At today’s meeting, the Commission examined information collected from investigative reports concerning high-profile cases. Four deals will be looked into in particular: the privatization of Tutun CTC, the lease of the Chisinau International Airport under a public-private concession agreement, the privatization of the flag carrier Air Moldova, and the concession of the Bus Stations State Company.
The audit is proposed to be conducted by the Court of Accounts, which is expected to present a report in Parliament within 60 days.
