Ion Țurcan, former Deputy Minister of Interior and former president of Criuleni district, risks losing 20,000 euros after the National Integrity Authority initiated the control of his wealth in April this year after Ziarul de Gardă wrote about his luxurious house put up for sale.

The National Integrity Authority found a substantial difference of 20,000 euros between the acquired wealth and the incomes. The verifications were performed for the period of holding several management positions within the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the position of district president. Based on the evidence accumulated on the case, the integrity inspector established that, for 2019, the former deputy minister could not justify the amount of approximately 20,000 euros.

Regarding the luxurious house presented in the ZdG investigation, according to the information provided by the Public Services Agency, Țurcan sold the real estate for the amount of 100,000 euros. As this building was acquired by Țurcan for a smaller amount, the integrity inspector submitted a complaint to the State Fiscal Service to examine the case. Ion Țurcan benefited from the right to express, during the control, his point of view regarding the case. He mentioned that in the period 2005-2021 worked on the construction of the house on his own and with the help of friends. Regarding the difference between wealth and income, Țurcan could not justify with documents its origin.

Thus, for the unjustified possession of 20,000 euros, the integrity inspector decided to send the case to the court in order to order its confiscation. If the act of finding remains final, Ion Țurcan risks being deprived of the right to exercise a public office or public dignity for three years and will be registered in the Register of Prohibitions.

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 the Democratic Party, put up for sale his luxury house, located on the bank of the Dniester.
