The deputy director of Poșta Moldovei State Enterprise Vasile Șoldan was detained this morning by the anticorruption officers in a case of abuse of office.

According to the preliminary data of the investigation, between May and June 2021, decision makers from Poșta Moldovei, having a prior agreement with two companies, would have concluded several fictitious contracts for the provision of IT services, despite the fact that Poșta Moldovei benefited from the same services, according to a contract concluded with another company in the field. In order to avoid the public auction, they would have completed the contracts as low value acquisitions, their total amount being 11,000 euros. Thus, the officials would have managed the financial resources contrary to their destination, harming the state budget to a large extent.

In order to accumulate the evidentiary material, several searches were carried out at the service office and the home of the current deputy director, and at the home of the former director of the institution. The offices of the two fictitiously contracted companies were also verified. Following the criminal prosecution actions, several pieces of evidence have been taken and are to be attached to the file.

For abuse of power or service, the national legislation provides a penalty of up to 7 years of detention or a fine of up to 6,000 euros, in both cases with deprivation of the right to hold certain public positions or to exercise a certain activity for a period of 5 to 10 years.
