Head of NAC: Disagreements with Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office have been overcome

Previous disagreements between the National Anti-Corruption Centre and the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office are a thing of the past, NAC head Iulian Rusu told Radio Moldova's "360 degrees" programme.

According to him, there is now evidence of cooperation between the officers and prosecutors of both institutions and consolidated efforts on their part to deliver the results expected in society.

"Fellow investigators and prosecution officers are working side by side with prosecutors, we have interesting cases in the pipeline, I see that there is collaboration and this is the most important thing, both at the level of case prosecutors and at the level of prosecutors who are in leading positions in the Anti Corruption Prosecutor's Office. Having these good examples, we have consolidated efforts and we are working in the same direction. I expect that we will soon deliver good results. If necessary, let's discuss the assignment of more prosecution officers to the house to complete the prosecution as soon as possible and the case to be sent to trial."

In mid-May, the head of the National Anti-Corruption Centre, Iulian Rusu, complained in the plenary of Parliament about an inefficient relationship with the Anti-Corruption and General Prosecutor's Offices. During the hearing of his activity report in the plenary of the Parliament, he accused colleagues in the two structures of not providing the necessary support and in some cases ordering the termination of criminal cases without explanation.

On the other hand, the Prosecutor's Office said at the time that the NAC director's allegations of certain "obstacles" in investigating cases of grand corruption had no legal reasoning.
