According to ZDG, searches of one of the magistrates detained two days ago, were approved only today.
The cases were examined by judges Victor Răţoi, called the service judge of NAC, Ghenadie Pavliuc and Mihai Diaconu.
Most judges detained refused to be present at today's hearing and remained in isolation.
During today's hearing, some of the judges detained by NAC requested adjournment of the trial. Judges examining cases admitted four steps of this kind.
One of the judges examining the causes, Victor Răţoi refused several times to provide media access to the delivery of decisions, although the law expressly provides for this right. At the insistence of reporters, they were nevertheless admitted to pronouncements.
Moreover, Răţoi was caught talking on the phone during the deliberations, there are suspicions that he consulted with someone for the decisions. Also, he has been transmitted a folder with documents.
There are suspicions that Răţoi consciously admitted these violations of procedure, so later the decisions can be challenged.
We remind that magistrates detained are suspected of complicity in money laundering in large proportions, being involved in the laundering scheme of USD 20 billion coming from the Russian Federation through Moldindconbank.
