Chisinau Court of Appeal will decide if the father of the 14-year-old, from Verejeni village, Teleneşti, who fatally shot his friend while playing, will be investigated without being arrested. It happened after prosecutors disputed the regional court's decision to let them go and requested them not to leave the country. Meanwhile, the victim's family attorney declared that the press has published multiple false information regarding this case.
