Romania’s former president Traian Băsescu was again stripped of Moldovan citizenship. The Chişinău Court of Appeal suspended the decision of a lower court which had suspended President Igor Dodon’s executive order on withdrawing the citizenship.
A next court session on this matter is scheduled for May. Till then, Igor Dodon will have to present his evidence grounding his decree on stripping Traian Băsescu of Moldovan citizenship.
In October 2016, former President Nicolae Timofti inked the decree on assigning Moldovan citizenship to Băsescu.
