CHISINAU, October 23./TASS/. The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova and former prime minister Vlad Filat will remain under arrest, his lawyer Igor Popa told reporters on Friday.
He said Chisinau’s board of appeal had dismissed the demand of the defense to reverse the court decision on Filat’s arrest for 30 days, adding that he intended to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.
Last week, the Moldovan parliament stripped Vlad Filat of parliamentary immunity, after he was charged with involvement into a high-profile case of embezzlement of $1 billion from the country’s banking system.
The move was supported by 79 of 101 deputies at the request of Moldova’s Prosecutor General Corneliu Gurin, who presented results of the probe.
Filat himself dismisses accusations, saying his partner in the pro-European coalition, Valdimir Plahotniuc, dubbed by Moldovan media as "grey cardinal of Moldovan politics,’ was behind the arrest.
