Former Premier Vlad Filat was set free before time by the decision of the Ciocana branch of the Chisinau City Court that accepted the penitentiary’s request and partially the lawyers’ request, IPN reports.
The court accepted the penitentiary’s request to release the ex-Premier on parole and partially accepted the lawyers’ request to free Vladimir Filat from the sentences given to him by the Buiucani branch of the Chisinau City Court on June 27, 2016.
The former Premier was to serve yet two years, eleven months and three days.
Vlad Filat is still banned from holding public posts for a period of five years and will remain without the Order of the Republic of which he was stripped.
Vlad Filat was obliged not to change the domicile without the consent of the surveillance body.
The ruling made by judge Victor Rațoi can be appealed to the Chisinau City Appeals Court within 15 days.
