The director of the forestry administrative authority Moldsilva has three conflicts of interest and risks losing his mandate and the right to hold a public office for 3 years.
The National Integrity Authority inspectors found that Dumintru Cojocaru, the director of the forestry administrative authority Moldsilva, admitted three situations of conflict of interest. In February 2020, Cojocaru appointed himself as chairman of the Boards of Directors in three state enterprises in the field of forestry, based in Edineț, Orhei, and Straseni districts. Subsequently, he signed an order granting monthly allowances in the amount of 150 euros to each member of these Councils, including himself.
Since then, the director of Moldsilva received about 3,300 euros salary for being the chairman of the Boards of Directors. Later he issued a document by which he decided to cancel his position of chairman of the Boards of Directors, but subsequently canceled that decision on February 6, 2020.
According to the National Integrity Authority, the director of Moldsilva had to inform the superiors about his conflict of interest and wait for a solution. The National Integrity Authority’s decision is final and the Moldsilva director risks losing his mandate and the right to hold public office for 3 years.
