Chairman of "Consumer Protection" public organization Piotr Guțul maintains that Police Station no.1 from Center sector, located on bd. Gagarin, 3 "was sold", which is inadmissible. At an IPN press conference, Piotr Guțul said that he learned about this from a letter signed by a police officer, which was sent to the organization led by him.
Piotr Guțul says that now the building in which the Police Station was headquartered is locked up. Some time ago, part of the building was rented by an economic agent.
Chairman of "Consumer Protection" public organization specifies that, in September, he asked for an audience with the Minister of the Interior, Andrei Năstase, but he was turned down. He also sent a letter to the Minister of Justice, Olesea Stamate and to the General Prosecutor's Office. "It is true that the sale transaction was concluded, but we were not told who was involved. It is an embarrassment that police stations are sold,” contends Piotr Gutul.
Referring to another issue, Piotr Guțul mentioned that, at a meeting with the leadership of the German Embassy, he was advised to draft a new law on consumer protection. However, the law in force is not respected, and if things do not change, "Moldova has no future", argues Piotr Guțul. The Consumer Protection organization developed the draft and sent it to the authorities.
Constantin Tabuncic, a member of the organization, complained that he had been unjustly treated for more than seven years. He says he has requested that his flat be disconnected from the centralized heating system, given that the economic agent did not provide the expected temperature of the heating agent. However, the request was not accepted and his family continues to receive invoices for a service that they did not request, while the debts have piled up. Last month, the man says that, without knowing that he was sued, he received the court ruling and must pay more than 22 thousand lei, debts accumulated during seven years. The man maintains he doesn't know how to deal with this situation.
