Ilan Shor’s lawyers appealed the decision of Buiucani District Court that yesterday ruled that the mayor of Orhei would stay under house arrest for another 30 days.
The statement was made by lawyer Iulian Balan for Deschide.md, noting that the defense required a non-custodial preventive measure.
Shor’s defense considers the decision illegal and declared that the prosecution did not present any new evidence. The lawyers also said they had collected 17 thousand signatures of Moldovan citizens, demanding the release of Orhei mayor.
On August 5, the judges changed the preventive measure in respect of Ilan Shor, placing him under house arrest for 30 days.
