This morning, April 6, acting Prime Minister Aureliu Ciocoi summoned Acting Interior Minister Pavel Voicu. The subject of discussion was Nikolay Chaus, a citizen of Ukraine abducted on the territory of the Republic of Moldova on April 3 current year, according to a government press release. Pavel Voicu informed the interim head of government about the measures taken by law enforcement agencies from the moment Unified Service 112 received the call. Minister of Internal Affairs stressed that immediately after receiving abduction information, all the relevant institutions of the ministry did react. At the same time, the Prosecutor's Office for Combating Organized Crime and Special Cases opened a criminal case on this fact. As a result of special investigative measures, law enforcement agencies collected evidence, found three cars that were used in abduction, established the route of movement of the criminals and identified the circle of persons involved. One person was detained. The police and the prosecutor's office have established the circle of persons with citizenship of another state who entered our country since March 23, including the abduction day. The information about these people is carefully checked in various ways. To date, government agencies have obtained several pieces of evidence in the case, including videos, documents and fingerprints. At the same time, Pavel Voicu stressed that he relies heavily on good cooperation with legal structures in Ukraine. Among the measures taken by government agencies was the strengthening of checks at all border crossing points.
