Mihai Popșoi, Deputy Speaker of the Parliament, MP of Action and Solidarity Party group, ACUM bloc, believes that the Prosecutor's Office should address the legislature with the request to lift the parliamentary immunity of some other deputies. According to him, a few more names should be included in the list of MPs stripped of immunity. The statements were made on the "Fourth Power" program, N4, IPN reports.
"I do not think the list is large, but surely a few more names should be added," said the PAS MP. According to him, in the case concerning the bank fraud, the MPs who should be stripped of immunity belong to the Democratic Party and Șor Party groups. However, the parliamentarian does not exclude the possibility that other cases could be initiated later and requests for immunity withdrawal could be forwarded against MPs from other parties. "As long as the prosecutor is independent, no one should expect indulgence, no one has immunity in the broad sense of the word. Any MP can be stripped of immunity, regardless of the parliamentary group”, declared Mihai Popșoi.
Alexandru Slusari, vice chairman of the legislature and MP of Dignity and Truth Platform Party within the ACUM bloc, says that among those whose parliamentary immunity must be lifted is the Democratic MP Andrian Candu. Slusari says that in August, based on the materials that were accumulated by the parliamentary committee on the investigation of the bank fraud, he also made a request to the Prosecutor's Office. "Granting state guarantees in 2014 without establishing a special administration in the three looted banks, in my opinion, constitutes a crime and there are persons liable for committing this crime," said the MP. According to him, Adrian Candu was examined during one hour by the parliamentary committee led by him.
At the same time, the parliamentarian says that until August 2019 there was no complete, comprehensive case file, with a systemic approach on the theft of the billion. This puzzle was artificially disassembled, in about 60-70 different files, investigated by different prosecutors so that there was no connection between them, so that no logical connection between the first step and the last step in this banking fraud could be established. "I very much hope that the report of the parliamentary committee would help the law enforcement authorities. But I agree that all this information exists at the Prosecutor's Office”, declared Alexandru Slusari.
