Businessman Veaceslav Platon said he will sue Moldova for damages at the European Court of Human Rights for the four years he spent in jail as a result of his sentencing to 18 years behind bars in a fully fabricated case. He will also demand to punish the prosecutors and judges to blame for his imprisonment and those who ordered his jailing, IPN reports.
“I do not intend to be in litigation with the state, but I will make effort for these persons to answer for their deeds. I think it is something normal,” Veaceslav Platon stated in the program “Exclusive Interview” on REN Moldova channel.
Asked if this is possible now in Moldova, the ombudsman said that sooner or later he will obtain justice, but voiced hope that President Maia Sandu will not try to defend Viorel Morari, Adriana Bețișor or those judges who sentenced him to 18 years in jail.
As to the complaint against Maia Sandu that he filed to the Prosecutor’s Office of the High Court of Cassation and Justice of Romania, Veaceslav Platon explained that despite the close political ties Maia Sandu has with the neighboring country, he has reasons to believe that it will be easier for him to get at the truth there.
The businessman noted that in any European country, for her interference in the judiciary, Maia Sandu would be jailed. “I want to see how Maia Sandu will explain her actions,” he stated.
