A representative of the Prosecutor General’s Office said that at the moment the prosecutor’s office has not made any decisions in relation to Dodon.
“As of today, only the hearing of Mr. Igor Dodon on the Energocom criminal case is scheduled. He testified as a suspect, stated his position. He pleads not guilty to the crime of which he is suspected. The investigation of the criminal case continues. Accordingly, in addition to the testimony given by Igor Dodon, prosecutors are going to study other evidence and give them a legal assessment,” the prosecutor’s office representatives said.
The day before, former Moldovan President Igor Dodon spent more than three hours in the Prosecutor General’s Office, where he was heard in the criminal case of Energocom JSC on the purchase of electricity in 2008-2009, when Dodon was Minister of Economy.
After the hearing, Dodon told the press that he was not guilty, and described all summons to the Prosecutor General’s Office as a “show”. The politician also said that he was summoned to the PGO on the instructions of the current government.
The Energocom case concerns the purchase of electricity during 2008-2009 through an intermediary company. It is assumed that the fraudulent scheme with the import of energy, as a result of which $ 12 million was stolen from the budget, was created during Igor Dodon’s tenure as Minister of Economy.
