“Every day we do not give permission to enter Moldova to 50-100 foreigners who cannot explain the purpose to visit the country” – a member of the Parliament of Moldova about the protests
Mass riots were planned in Moldova on March 12. Law enforcement officers prevented bloodshed. Andrian Cheptonar, member of parliament of the Commission on National Security, Defense and Public Order of the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova, said this during a briefing at Media Center Ukraine – Odesa.
“Last Sunday mass riots were planned, but our law enforcement agencies worked very well to prevent bloodshed. Also, last week a mercenary of PMC “Wagner” tried to enter Moldova, but he was not allowed to enter the country. Every day we do not give permission to enter Moldova to 50-100 foreigners who cannot explain the purpose of their visit to the country,” – Andrian Cheptonar said.
He also added that the police confiscated 250,000 euros that were supposed to be used to pay the protesters.
“Also, the police conducted a very good operation to detain 20-30 athletic young men, who were supposed to form groups to break through the borders of the police according to the instructions of a russian curator. The curator was allowed to enter Moldova under control of our security service. Now he is arrested by the Moldovan police,” – the MP said.
The deputy also said that a week ago about 80 citizens were identified at the entrance to Moldova. The ‘Shor” party trained and instructed those people in Turkey to provoke mass riots.
He also noted that, in his opinion, society is not in the mood to change the government. “But these anti-democratic protests, I think, are created for media content, as well as to increase the electoral base of pro-russian forces. “Shor” is trying to get voters from the “Party of Communists and Socialists” – a few days ago, one MP of this party switched to the “Shor” party” – the MP said.
Andrian Cheptonar added that changes to the draft law on counterintelligence are currently being prepared in Moldova. According to him, now the special services of Moldova may persecute people who have already committed a crime.
“Now we need the sanctions of the judge and the prosecutor to carry out some operational measures. But the Information and Security Service of Moldova works to prevent crimes. And if there is no criminal case, some activities cannot be taken. We are trying to change this, so that the special service outside the criminal proceedings can conduct secret investigative actions,” – Andrian Cheptonar added.
