Interim prosecutor general, Dumitru Robu, requested from the Superior Council of Magistracy an agreement for perquisition in a case of illicit enrichment. According to some sources of Ziarul de Gardă, Tatiana Avasiloaie is the judge that is investigated in this case.

The National Integrity Authority found a substantial difference of over 50,000 euros between the fortune and income of Judge Tatiana Avasiloaie, a magistrate from the Chișinău Court, Râșcani headquarters. Avasiloaie owns a penthouse located in the center of Chișinău. The National Integrity Authority investigation was initiated after a ZdG investigation, published in February 2020.

ZdG wrote in February 2020 that the magistrate can be seen, daily, while entering a penthouse of over 150 square meters, located in a block of flats in the center of the capital. Although ZdG caught Judge Avasiloaie’s car parked in front of that block in the morning, she denied that she lived in that block: “I check if the water and the heat are okay,” the judge said.

The block of flats where is located Avasiloaie’s penthouse.

In the 2020 investigation, ZdG wrote that the market price of such a building exceeds 120,000 euros. However, the building is not found in the wealth declarations submitted by the magistrate, where she indicated a house in Chișinău, built by her parents, but also a car, registered in the name of her father.

The block in which the magistrate could be seen was put into operation in 2015, and a square meter of living space cost, during the construction, approximately 800 euros. In 2020, a square meter will cost no less than 1,100 euros, according to the information posted on the website of the company that built the block. ZdG established that Tatiana Avasiloaie entered a five-room penthouse, located on the seventh floor of this block. The building, with an area of ​​155 square meters, was bought in February 2017 and registered in the name of Tatiana Șevciuc, a doctor in a polyclinic on the left bank of the Dniester.

Although ZdG photographed the magistrate’s car in the evening and in the morning, parked in front of this block, and later caught the magistrate as she entered and left that block, Tatiana Avasiloaie denied that she would live in that penthouse. She told us that she was taking care of that apartment because the owner would have gone abroad.

According to the information on the magistrat.md website, Tatiana Avasiloaie has been a judge since 2012, when she was appointed to the Căușeni District Court for a term of five years.

Shortly afterward, in December 2014, she was temporarily transferred, for a period of six months, to the Chișinău Court, Botanica headquarters. In June 2015, she was transferred there. In March 2017, she was appointed to the Chișinău Court, Botanica headquarters until she reached the age limit.

Until entering the position of magistrate, Avasiloaie was a lawyer in the General Directorate of Population Documentation, and between 2004 and 2012 she was the main consultant in the registry and administrative litigation section and a referent in the Supreme Court of Justice.
