Persons who until recently struggled against SRL “Central House” now say they are representatives of this company, while those who defended its interests were removed from the company’s administration, said Raisa Morozan, who is the lawyer for Vitalie Perciun, former administrator of “Central House” and current administrator of “Central Group”.
The lawyer told a news conference that Vitalie Perciun, when he managed “Central House”, developed the territory around the Central Bus Terminal (Gara Auto Centru), including the pavements and platforms, and set up a lighting system. Commercial areas were built there. Problems appeared immediately after these investments were made. “The company “Gările și Stațiile Auto” was then managed by Veaceslav Zara, the current director of the Public Property Agency, while vice director was Iurie Moroz, the current director of “Gările Auto Moderne”, which took over all the bus stations in the country,” stated Raisa Morozan.
According to the lawyer, the actions intensified in 2019 and included the disconnection from the water supply and sewerage system and placing of impediments to individual connection. Legal actions were taken with the aim of sequestrating the money from the company’s accounts so as to block its activity and create debts to the state.
The commercial areas of over 2,700 square meters situated around the Central Bus Station were leased out with the consent of the General Assembly of Associates of SRL “Central House” to “Central Group”. The contract was signed in a move to break the impasse as, even if money was coming to the accounts of
“Central House”, it was frozen immediately and could not be used.
Raisa Morozan also said that today, by the actions of the insolvency administrator, attempts are made to take over the commercial areas belonging to “Central House”, which are situated around the Central Bus Station.
In another news conference, lawyer Iosip Andrei said that after insolvency proceedings were brought against “Central House”, the company, which was then managed by Vitalie Perciun, signed a lease with “Central Group”, which is an affiliate of it. Under this contract, the real estate belonging to “Central House” was leased out to “Central Group” for a period of 29 years, since August 1, 2018. “Central House” monthly earns about €8,000 rental for these areas that is paid by “Central Group”, while the latter collects at least €100,000 a month from sub-lessees.
