 Former Moldovan President Igor Dodon will spend another 20 days under house arrest

Ex-president of Moldova Igor Dodon will spend another 20 days under house arrest – such a decision was made on September 19 by the court of the metropolitan area of ​​​​Cecana.

The judges partially approved a request from prosecutors who demanded to extend the arrest of the ex-president for 30 days. At the same time, Dodon's lawyer is dissatisfied with the court's decision and intends to challenge it in the Appeals Chamber.

The court made the decision against the backdrop of anti-government protests announced on September 18 by the Shor opposition party. Dodon supported the protests and said that he would join them, but he is under house arrest.

“I am sure that everyone needs to unite against this regime. Now you need to do everything possible to save Moldova,” Dodon wrote on social media.

Dodon was detained on May 24, 2022. He is accused of passive corruption, illicit enrichment, treason and financing of a political party by a criminal group.

The Kremlin, commenting on the Dodon case, said they were concerned about “the persecution of adherents of friendly relations with the Russian Federation.”
