Ilan Șor striped of parliamentary immunity

MP Ilan Șor remained without legislative immunity after acting prosecutor general Dumitru Robu presented relevant requests in Parliament over reasonable suspicions that Șor committed money laundering and swindle. According to Dumitru Robu, in the first half of 2012, Ilan Șor decided to constitute an organized criminal group for stealing money from Moldova’s banking system for financing economic activities in the country and outside it. One of the financed organizations was the one managed by the former leader of the Democratic Party Vlad Plahotniuc, IPN reports.

“The members of the organized criminal group led by Ilan Șor, being assisted in their criminal activities by other persons, used the money obtained illegally to extend their possessions in the Republic of Moldova and other states, while the burden of the financial responsibility was placed on the national public budget,” stated Dumitru Robu.

A number of 61 MPs voted in favor of lifting the immunity, including the MPs of Șor group who in a news conference earlier said that this vote does not mean acceptance of blame, but shows the consistency of the group that pleads for the exclusion of the legislative immunity of all the MPs. The Socialist MPs boycotted the sitting. They left the assembly hall and joined a protest against the arrest of the president of honor of the Party of Socialists. Their Communist mates left the hall before the vote, arguing acting prosecutor general Dumitru Robu is not entitled to ask to lift parliamentary immunity as he is not prosecutor general.

In June 2017, Ilan Șor was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison for his role in the $1B bank fraud. On August 15, 2019, Ilan Şor was stripped of parliamentary immunity. In the elections of July 11, 2021, Ilan Șor won a new seat of MP, but hasn’t attended any of the Parliament sittings.
