The case filed by the Anticorruption Prosecutor for stripping 75 shareholders from Moldova Agroindbank of assets worth over MDL 20 million, is transmitted by magistrates from one court to another.
The Buiucani Court in the Capital, refused the examining because it is not under their jurisdiction because the crime was committed in Center Sector. In their turn, the magistrates of Centre District Court, say that the examining is not under their competence because it was investigated by the Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office, which is located in Buiucani.
Finally, the case was forwarded to the Court of Appeal, to decide which court will examine the dossier.
In the case of Moldova - Agroindbank, are accused four people, Stela Pahomi, former member of the Board of Directors of the MAIB and her brother- Alexandru Grumeza, Vladimir Torodii, database administrator of Company Registru-Corect SA and Octavian Popinin, a former employee of the Rascani Inspectorate of Police in the capital.
According to prosecutors, the group, led by Stela Pahomi, which is said to be one of the main pillars of Veaceslav Platon, have implemented a scheme which has taken control of a company who managed the database of shareholders, which they then used to find the identity of shareholders from actions that could be taken by falsifying documents.
Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office, submitted the dossier to the court on 5 July 2016. Stela Pahomi, Alexandru Grumeza and Vladimir Torodii are in custody and refused to attend the hearings. Former policeman Octavian Popînin the only accused who remain in freedom under judicial control, made an appearance. Popînin assaulted the activist Anatol Mătăsaru, who has given him the right to reply. The activist filed an application to the police.
We mention that Octavian Popînin is accused in another criminal case pending in the Center District Court of the Capital.
