CHISINAU, October 15. /TASS/. The Moldovan parliament will put to vote the issue of lifting parliamentary immunity off the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party and former prime minister Vlad Filat, who is facing criminal charges in the case of a theft of one billion dollars from Moldovan banks.
"We insisted that the voting on the issue be open and held today. We have been supported," the leader of the opposition Party of Socialists, Igor Dodon, said, noting that Liberal Democrats insisted on voting postponement to the next week.
At a parliamentary session on Thursday, Moldova’s Prosecutor General Corneliu Gurin said, "We have evidence of his implication in this case, testimonial evidence and documents".
Meanwhile, Filat told reporters that he did not need a parliamentary immunity. "An investigation begins. I hope for a fair investigation where I will prove my innocence," he said.
At the present moment, the opposition Party of Socialists and Our Party are picketing the parliamentary building, demanding to bring to justice those responsible for thefts in the country’s banking system.
