The Prosecutor’s Office announced today that a former special administrator of Unibank, appointed in 2015, was detained for 72 hours in the billion-dollar bank fraud case being accused of abuse of office in the interest of a criminal group. The suspect risks from three to seven years in prison.

The Prosecutor’s Office representatives claim that together with the Intelligence and Security Service, it is carrying out an investigation in the billion-dollar bank fraud case, namely, in the issue of offering over 5 million euros from the bank guarantees account in 2015, within the special administration of Unibank.

The prosecutors carried out searches at the home and office of an employee of the National Bank of Moldova, who in 2015 was appointed special administrator of Unibank. As a result of the searches, the authorities seized mobile phones, electronic media, and documents. The suspect is accused of abuse of office in the interest of a criminal group and according to the law, he risks imprisonment from 3 to 7 years with deprivation of the right to hold certain positions or to exercise a certain activity for a period of 10 years and 15 years.

On December 30, 2014, the National Bank established a special administration regime on Unibank for a period of 9 months. By the Decision of the Board of Directors, Ruslan Grate, an employee of the National Bank, was appointed as special administrator of Unibank.

Last week Monday, June 14, the controversial businessman, Veaceslav Platon, sentenced in 2017 to 18 years in prison for allegedly obtaining, through illegal schemes, about 1 billion lei (47 million euros) from the Banca de Economii bank, then released and re-tried, was acquitted, by the magistrates of the Chișinău Court in the bank fraud case.
