Private investigator Anatolie Postică, ex-chief of the Internal Protection and Anticorruption Division of the Ministry of the Interior, will inform the prosecutor general about the hushing up of dangerous real estate scams thought up by the former administrator of a Chisinau real estate firm. In his complaint, Anatolie Postică says there are unfinished cases featuring the former administrator as an organizer or an accomplice and a series of petitions filed to specialized prosecutor’s offices that got only formal answers.
The private detective told a news conference held at IPN that the illegalities consist of the hiding of transactions and non-declaring of incomes, which is tax evasion. Anatolie Postică, who is an anticorruption expert, said he gathered new information that shows the former administrator of the real estate company resorted to new scams. Some of the company’s employees furnished him with materials such as copies of sales and purchase agreements and advance payment contracts that weren’t included in the accounting records of the firm.
According to the investigator, given that the identified violations should be punished criminally, he passed on the obtained information to the Prosecutor’s Office for Organized Crime and Special Cases and the State Tax Inspectorate. More than three months have passed, but the real estate agents haven’t been yet questioned or searched. One of the prosecutors ordered to carry out searches at the homes of employees of a real estate company based on a fake complaint, while the authorities were repeatedly informed about the scams designed by the former administrator.
Anatolie Postică said he will attach the materials collected in this case to his complaint as they are within the remit of the prosecutor general.
