The National Integrity Authority investigates the former deputy Minister of Interior Ion Țurcan after ZdG published an article about his luxurious house. The official tried to sell the house at a price 53 times higher than indicated in his declaration of wealth.

In April, ZdG wrote that General Ion Țurcan, former Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, who for 10 months held the position of President of Criuleni district on behalf of Democratic Party of Moldova, put up for sale his luxury house, located on the shore of the Nistru River.

Although in the declarations of wealth and personal interests submitted to the National Integrity Authority, the former head of the Special Forces writes that he obtained the house through a donation and that its value is 6,000 euros, on the website announcements he requested 320,000 euros or 53 times more than it indicates in the documents. A day after ZdG wrote that Țurcan put his luxury house up for sale, the ad published on a specialized site was deleted.
