Former deputy Mayor of Bălți, Leonid Babii went out of his jurisdiction while being the acting Mayor. Without having the right, he signed his own appointment and issued documents justifying fugitive Renato Usatîi's absence from work.
According to State Chancellery of Bălți, Babii offered him unpaid leave and travels. The documents were signed during 2015 - 2016, when fugitive Mayor organized protests in Chisinau.
"The Deputy Mayor had no right to offer the Mayor unpaid leave or send him on trips and sign his own appointment into this position. Mayor of Bălți both while being outside the country and within it, organizing protest, or elsewhere, had to act accordingly and not obligate people who helped him run the City" chief of State Chancellery of Bălți, Octavian Mahu said.
According to Mahu, Supreme Court of Justice has recently annulled five documents offering fugitive Renato Usatîi unpaid leave.
At the same time, Mahu requested Bălți City Hall to present all documents signed by Leonid Babii during 2015 - 2016. Later, the court will be requested to annul them. At the moment, the court is examining documents signed by former interim Mayor Igor Șeremet.
