The law on the functioning of languages spoken on the territory of the Republic of Moldova, which was adopted on December 16, 2020, was declared unconstitutional, IPN reports.
The president of the Constitutional Court Domnica Manole said the decision was taken following the examination of two challenges filed by MPs Octavian Țîcu, Dinu Plîngău and Maria Ciobanu. The decision is accompanied by a separate opinion of constitutional judge Vladimir Țurcan.
Two protests were mounted in front of the CC on January 21, while the constitutional court was examining the challenges. A group of people changed “Romanian is the only master!”, while the second group chanted slogans in support of the Russian language. The police formed a cordon between the protesters.
