CHISINAU, October 25. /TASS/. Detained leader of Moldova’s opposition Our Party Renato Usatii has been released, following a ruling passed by the Chisinau court on Sunday.
The court thus rejected the prosecutors’ demand to extend the opposition leader’s preliminary arrest by another 30 days.
The politician was greeted by thousands of his supporters in the street. They earlier staged a rally in the court’s hall with a demand to release the opposition leader.
"Thank you very much! We’ll continue the struggle against corrupt authorities," Usatii told his supporters after his release.
The opposition leader said his supporters should continue a rally in a tent camp outside the parliament where an indefinite protest staged by the Party of Socialists and Our Party had been going on for a month now.
The opposition has accused the country’s authorities of corruption and demands their resignation and early elections.
Usatii was detained at Chisinau’s international airport on Friday upon arrival from Moscow. The Moldovan politician is suspected of violating privacy of correspondence after he had published on his Facebook page 15 audio records of telephone conversations.
These are allegedly the conversations between businessman Ilan Shor and Vlad Filat, former prime minister and the leader the Liberal-Democratic party. Filat was arrested last week on charges of corruption and involvement in the large-scale theft from the country’s banking system.
