Gagauz Bashkan Irina Vlah's proposed modification on Prosecution Law will be examined in Prosecutors General Assembly, announced President of High Council of Prosecutors (CSP) Angela Motuzoc.
According to Vlah's proposal, the Gagauzian prosecutor's office should have the status of legal entity, and the prosecutor's offices of the Comrat, Vulcanesti and Ceadîr-Lunga districts will be subordinated to the regional prosecutor's office and not to the General Prosecutor's Office, as it is at present. Moreover, Irina Vlah wants the autonomy prosecutor to be part of General Prosecutor's office, having equal rights with general prosecutor and his deputies.
In addition, CSP will have the right to reject only once the candidate proposed by regional legislature. They will be obliged to accept when the rejected candidate will be repeatedly forwarded by Comrat deputies.
Many representatives of civil societies have criticized this document, saying they attempt to federalize prosecutor's office.
This document also triggered outrage among politicians who believe there shouldn't be two general prosecutors - in Chisinau and in Comrat.
However, this proposal received a nod from former Socialist deputy Vladimir Ţurcan, who recently became the president of the Constitutional Court.
