    Two investigations carried out by our colleagues won the first and the third places in a competition organized by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (Germany) and the Independent Press Association.

    ZdG author Anatolie Eșanu took the third place to investigate the “The Portrait of a Head of National Penitentiary Administration.” ZdG revealed that Serghei Demcenco, deputy director of the National Administration of Penitentiaries, has lived for many years in an undeclared luxury house in midtown Chișinău. Starting with 2014, Serghei Demcenco declares alleged donations from relatives amounting to 60,000 euros.

The presidential entourage developed businesses and big fortunes for the presidential couple’s benefits.
