President Maia Sandu claims that the resigning Minister of Interior, Pavel Voicu, “ordered the surveillance of her family members” at the socialists’ behest.

President Maia Sandu claims that the resigning Minister of Interior, Pavel Voicu, “ordered the surveillance of her family members.” at the socialists’ behest. In this context, President Sandu mentioned that her family members have been under surveillance for several weeks, but without providing more details.

“The Minister of Interior ordered the surveillance of my family members. He can’t follow me because I have a state guard, but he can take care of my family members. Sure, this is illegal, it’s an abuse […] Of course, it is done at the request of the socialists because Minister Voicu takes care of that,” declared president Maia Sandu.

Maia Sandu also mentioned that she will not file a complaint in this regard.

“I will not file a complaint, I will appeal to citizens to go to the polls, to vote for honest people and so to make sure that we will have interior ministers and institutions that respect people’s rights,” mentioned president Sandu.

The Socialist’s leader, Igor Dodon, claims that “there are no attempts at surveillance” in the case of President’s family members and, according to him, the statements of the head of state are made “to draws attention in the election campaign.”

“This is a way to draw attention in the election campaign – you say that you are assaulted, that you are surveilled. In Moldova, only the Security and Intelligence Service (SIS) deals with such things, and SIS is subordinated to the Presidency,” said Igor Dodon.

The Security and Intelligence Service representatives issued a press release today denying ”any involvement in activities that go beyond the legal framework,” but also that it “will not comment on political statements.”

“The Security and Intelligence Service will not comment on political statements. At the same time, the institution denies any involvement in activities that go beyond the legal framework. (…) Unfortunately, the SIS is frequently used by various political actors or opinion leaders in their rhetoric, without them knowing the essence of the Service’s work, as well as the procedures followed by the institution.” it is mentioned in the SIS note.
