Superior Council of Magistracy (SCM) rejected the request of Diaciuc family to suspend from post a newly member of the SCM, Gheorghe Avornic, due to the criminal case in which he appears. That’s because Avornic may be suspended only by the institution which appointed him, ie by the Parliament.
ZdG wrote earlier that Avornic family owns 30 companies in Moldova and Romania, him beeing the sole founder of the Private Institute of Higher Education “Baltic Institute of Ecology, Politics and Law in Moldova”, holding a 50% shareholding in Production and Trade Company “Miledi” Ltd. On behalf of his wife, Ana Avornic, are listed 8 companies, and his daughter, Victoria Avornic, is the founder of another 12 companies. Some firms of Avornic family appear as shareholders in other companies.
The movie of the criminal case
Elena and Mihail Diaciuc from city Balti, founders of companies “Primavia-Exim” Ltd. and “Miledi” Ltd., hired Gheorge Avornic to represent their interests as a lawyer in a dispute. They are saying that by cheating, Gheorge Avornic has proposed to make him a shareholder, saying that this way he could solve the problems more easily. At the end, the family Diaciuc claims that they were “duped”. They addressed a complaint to the Prosecutor Chisinau. Two months ago, Attorney Chisinau, Ivan Diacov, confirmed that the name of Gheorge Avornic appear in a criminal case.
According to the Chamber, the firm of Diaciuc family, “Primavia-Exim” Ltd., was taken entirely by Avornic family. The single founder of the firm became the private High School “LITTERARUM”, whose sole shareholder is Avornic Victoria, daughter of Gheorge Avornic. And in the second family firm of Diaciuc family, “Miledi” Ltd, Avornic seized 50% of stake.
On November 25, 2013, family Diaciuc wrote a complaint to the General Inspectorate of Police Chisinau, demanding George Avornic to be held criminally liable because he left them without companies and with bank debts.
On December 24, 2013, the very day that Gheorge Avornic was voted by the Parliament as a member of the CSM, the Police Inspectorate has signed a document, mailed to Diaciuc family, showing that “after the examination, it was determined that, at the Police Department Chisinau, was registered a criminal case on the fact that the citizen Gheorge Avornic, through abuse of trust and deception, has acquired from Diaciuc family the firms “Miledi” Ltd and “Primavia-Exim “Ltd.
Where did the file got lost?
On January 13, 2014, the prosecutor Oleg Baciu, from Chisinau Prosecutor, issue an order saying that this criminal case was initiated on January 10th, 2014 by the investigating authority of DoP Chisinau, under cues offense provided by the Article 190 of the Penal Code par.5, Fraud.
Also, by respectively ordinance, prosecutor Baciu decided to send the file to the Police Inspectorate and Prosecution Balti, as ” the contracts between representatives were signed at Balti, as well as the legal address of companies is there… and the fact that most witnesses are in that sector”.
On February 13, 2014, family Diaciuc writes a letter to the Attorney General, Corneliu Gurin, requesting the case to be examined by the competent authorities from Chisinau, as clerk, Avornic and others who were involved in the scheme resides in Chisinau. “In Balti, the file will be closed quickly”, told us Elena Diaciuc.
ZdG made an official request to PG, asking for information about the prosecution department in which the case is and the name of the investigating prosecutor. In the response of PG is said that the criminal case was sent, after jurisdiction, to Prosecution Balti “to organize the exercise of further prosecution”.
Avornic: God will do justice to everyone
Yesterday, March 5th, we contacted the attorney from Balti, Tureac Viorel, who told us that the file was sent to the Prosecutor General, who will decide who will handle it further. “Until now, the file did not return to us. It’s at PG”.
Diaciuc family has made a request to the CSM, demanding Gheorge Avornic to be suspended from the membership of the CSM, during examination of the file, so that he does not influence the investigation. On Tuesday, March 4th, CSM rejected the request, on the grounds that it would be unfounded. This is because the law states that SCM members can only be suspended by the institution that appointed them.
Gheorge Avornic claims that he knows nothing about the criminal case in which he appears. “I am not guilty and I am not a crook. I have no criminal record. Nobody talked to me, ever. Ask those who wrote in the documents (from PGI and Prosecution – no). They do something, but think after that. Now, Mrs. Diaciuc is an angel, and Avornic – a crook. I do not talk nonsense. I am a serious person and I respect myself. I had higher incomes than everyone in this country … I had incomes of millions, reported the IRS. So I could afford to buy my house and shares in companies and do not have to justify myself to anyone. I did not steal anything from anyone. You should stay out of my private life. What I had I declared. God will do justice to everyone”, told us Gheorge Avornic, member of the CSM.
