    The former head of the National Anticorruption Center (NAC) sues the Parliament of Moldova and demands his old position back. The Parliament is in the power of electing the head of the Center, as stated in the 8th Art. of the 2015 revised Legislation on National Anticorruption 

    Center. In 2019, the Parliament’s majority voted for Zumbreanu’s dismissal from the position of director, which he held for almost three years.

    Judge Iraida Secrieru is examining the case. The first meeting was to take place on May 11, but due to the pandemic, it was postponed to July 1, then continued on July 17. The next meeting will take place on September 21. 

     Bogdan Zumbreanu stated for the anticoruptie.md portal that he contested both the motive and the procedure by which the legislature dismissed him. “My dismissal was based on an informative note from some jurists that I would be guilty of sentencing the Republic of Moldova to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). However, my name does not occur in any European court decision. The files I got involved in lost due to procedural mistakes admitted by other officials,” said the former director of NAC. Zumbreanu mentioned for the same source that he had not been re-employed and is staying at home with his family. If he gets a restoration offer- he will return to work.

    Bogdan Zumbreanu started his activity in the law enforcement bodies in 2001, at the Chișinău Prosecutor’s Office as an investigator and provisory assistant of the prosecutor. He joined the Center for Combating Economic Crimes and Corruption in 2002 as a senior investigator in the Criminal Investigation Department. Between 2004 and 2008, he worked as Head of Department in the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation.

    An article written by ZdG, informing about the background of the former head of NAC (https://www.zdg.md/importante/portretul-sefului-cna/), mentions that Zumbreanu worked for five months in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, where he followed his godfather from his first marriage, Valentin Mejinschi. He was director of the Center For Combating Economic Crimes And Corruption (CCECC) in 2004-2008, during March- October 2008 he worked in the Government, as Minister of Internal Affairs (MIA).

     After five months working in the Ministry, Zumbreanu returned to the CCECC, as chief inspector within the Operational Insurance Directorate. In 2010 he was elected deputy director of the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation, and from 2012 until he was appointed director of the National Anticorruption Center, he headed the Criminal Investigation Directorate of the institution.

    In December 2017, 60 deputies voted for Bogdan Zumbreanu to become executive of the National Anticorruption Center. In June 2019, the Democratic Party of Moldova left the Parliamentary, while Vladimir Plahotniuc departed from the Republic of Moldova, leaving the power to the new parliamentary majority formed by parties of PSRM and ACUM Block. The coalition dismissed Zumbreanu because he took part in some cases by which the ECHR convicted Moldova.

    After being dismissed by the Parliament from the position of head of the National Anticorruption Center, Zumbreanu remained in the institution anyway, holding the position of director of the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation. After taking up the chair, Zumbreanu applied for resignation, citing personal reasons.
