President Maia Sandu said the prosecutors are at the final stage of investigation of the case concerning the concession of the Chisinau International Airport and this will be soon sent to court. The subject was discussed by the Supreme Security Council, IPN reports.
After the meeting that lasted for about six hours, President Sandu said that representatives of a number of institutions responsible for the monitoring of investments stipulated in the concession contract, for the investigation of suspicions of corruption and others were invited to the meeting. The discussions lasted long as this is a complex subject and there were presented many details, but these cannot be made public as the case is to be remitted to court.
Maia Sandu noted that she requested the Public Property Agency to ask to hasten the examination of the case concerning the termination of the contact for the concession of the airport in court. The hearings were put off on the pretext of the pandemic, but this is a case of national interest and its examination should be speeded.
Acceding to the official, the Supreme Security Council also discussed the monitoring by state institutions of the investments made in the airport by the company that holds the concession contact and the relevant assessments carried out by the Public Property Agency. A Government inquiry into the way in which the implementation of the investment plan until 2019 was monitored is to be conducted as there are fewer reports namely for the period between 2014 and 2019.
“We suspect that they didn’t want to monitor the way in which the company managing the airport was implementing the concession contract,” said President Sandu.
