The mayor who bought a village Mihail Merzâncu will receive over 1.5 million lei (about 75,000 euros) from the Cotul Morii Local Council. The Chișinău Court of Appeal made the decision to collect this money from the council’s account.

In July 2010, the protection dam near Hîncești district yielded under the waters of the Prut River. The flood smashed Cotul Morii village in the Hîncești district entirely. Hundreds of houses and thousands of hectares of agricultural land were destroyed.

The authorities decided to build a new town on a hill used for agricultural purposes, next to the flooded village. While the houses were in construction, the former mayor of Cotul Morii Hall, Mihail Merzîncu, bought dozens of lots in the construction area. After that, he asked for compensation from the state for the houses that were built on his land. At the beginning of 2020, the Hîncești Court partially admitted his request, forcing the Ministry of Finance and the Cotul Morii Local Council to pay him compensations of up to €81,700.
