The Court of Appeal rejected the request of the lawyers of the former PDM president Vlad Plahotniuc, and upheld the decision on the arrest warrant for 30 days.
The former president of the Democratic Party is accused of money laundering in particularly large proportions.
Lawyer Vladislav Roşca says that Vlad Plahotniuc declares himself innocent and qualifies the prosecutors' actions as a political outcry from the current government. Moreover, there would be interventions from the Russian Federation. According to the lawyer, there is no evidence that would prove Vlad Plahotniuc's guilt.
