On one hand, the lawyer of the victims, Gasitoi Violeta, said one of her clients wrote on social networks that she does not agree with the prosecutor's request. The victim insists on life imprisonment for the accused.
On the other hand, the lawyer of the accused, Angela Procopciuc, declared that "Mr. Florea permanently declared himself innocent. He calls for his acquittal on all counts due to the lack of constituent components of the offense and because some crimes are said to have been done in '88, '90, '93, when there was another Criminal Code and other liabilities", she told the newspaper Ziarul de Gardă.
Moreover, in an interview offered to newsmaker. md, Violeta Gasitoi declared that not only the director blames the victims but also the witnesses for the defense. Gasitoi mentioned that one of the witnesses said: "Look at them. Are they Angelina Jolie to be raped?".
To my question: "If it was Angelina Jolie, could the accused Stanislav Florea do this?” the answer was: "It would be another matter. It is already possible with Angelina Jolie".
In the same time, Gasitoi exclamed: „Overall, I believe that the prosecution had to institute criminal proceedings not only against the person suspected of committing a crime directly, but also against those who, in a way or another, covered or did not take any action. I mean, the former director of the boarding school. Most rapes were committed in the boarding school in Balti”.
