    Deputies accused of corruption, influence peddling, abuse of power, illicit enrichment, and money laundering will be deprived of immunity, arrested, and detained without notifying Parliament. The magistrates of the Constitutional Court approved on Tuesday, October 26, the draft law aimed at amending the Constitution.

    “The initiative submitted by 63 deputies was presented and is in accordance with the provisions of Article 141 of the Constitution. The draft constitutional law corresponds to the time limits for the revision of the Constitution and can be submitted to the Parliament for examination,” said Domnica Manole, President of the Constitutional Court.

    In September, the deputies of the parliamentary faction of the Action and Solidarity Party requested the Constitutional Court to approve the draft law amending Article 70 of the Moldovan Constitution. According to the draft, it is proposed to exclude the deputy’s immunity in case he commits the most serious corruption offenses and in case of money laundering. Thus, in the case of these charges, it will no longer be necessary for Parliament to approve the detention, arrest, or search and referral of the case to court.

    “Parliament’s consent to detention, arrest, search or prosecution is not required in the case of corruption, influence pending, abuse of power, illicit enrichment, and money laundering,” the Action and Solidarity Party statement said.

    According to Rule 84 of Parliament’s Rules of Procedure, the adoption of the draft constitutional law by Parliament requires the vote of two-thirds of the elected members, representing at least 68 Members. The parliamentary faction of the Action and Solidarity Party holds 63 seats in the Legislature, and for the approval of the draft amendment to the Constitution, they need the vote of at least 5 more deputies.

    Currently, Article 70 of the Constitution of Moldova stipulates that the deputy may not be detained, arrested, searched, except in cases of flagrant crime, or sent to trial without the consent of Parliament, after his hearing.
