Officials notified the Prosecutor General's Office after discovering that a forest strip was given on lease in 2008 but the has stamps on it from several institutions.
The date of signature or names of those who authorized the work is, however, missing.
It is a 40 hectares land around Chisinau, that the tenant intends to build dozens of houses, restaurants and car parks.
"I am absolutely sure that this issue must be submitted to the General Prosecutor's Office, because the behavior of public officials who allowed such things must necessarily be investigated. I am preparing a document in this regard", said Environment Ministry, Valeriu Munteanu .
Over six hundred contracts with a validity of up to 49 years, remained in force from previous years.
Even if the law provides that forest leasing is prohibited, more works on these lands are seen.
