According to Vlad Filat’s former lawyer, Vladimir Plahotniuc and President Igor Dodon are currently in contact, and the fugitive oligarch plans to return to Moldova by the end of this year.
Igor Popa told on the air of the program on TV8 that during his last conversation with Plahotniuc this spring, the ex-democrat said that he had talked with Igor Dodon, cotidianul.md reports.
“The last time I saw Plahotniuc, he told me that he was in touch with Igor Dodon and said that he had made a deal with Dodon and would get home soon.
According to him, the prosecutor’s office is partially controlled by him. I mean by Plahotniuc. He hinted that Stoianoglo is independent and gives him much trouble.
When talking about Dodon, he said that they communicate and make plans. It got me thinking. If Plahotniuc returns with Dodon’s help, it will be sad,” Popa said.
“Probably, Plahotniuc is more comfortable here. It is much easier for him to be in Moldova than in a country where the law works,” the lawyer concluded.
