    The U.S. Ambassador to Moldova confirms that the U.S. authorities have received the extradition request of the former leader of the Democratic Party, Vladimir Plahotniuc, and that “its examination is ongoing”. The statement was made during the Black Box, a show broadcast by TV8. 

    Dereck J. Hogan did not provide further details, stating that the investigation is ongoing. The U.S. authorities, responsible for the case have direct communication with the authorities in Moldova. 

    Asked how long it takes to examine an extradition request, the ambassador stated that this depends on the case and the evidence that is offered.

    “Moldova’s authorities must present all the records they have and after that, the examination of this request begins,” said Dereck J. Hogan, the U.S. Ambassador to Moldova. 

    Two weeks ago, the Prosecutor General, Alexandr Stoianoglo, requested the U.S. to extradite Plahotniuc, who is charged with involvement in “The Theft of the Billion”.

    At the same time, the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office requested that U.S. authorities prosecute Plahotniuc’s criminal activity and investigate the origin of his assets in the U.S.

    Plahotniuc sued the U.S. State Department one month after the visa ban was announced. In Moldova, Plahotniuc has four criminal cases opened against him, two of them being linked to “The Theft of the Billion”.
