Adrian Efros: No one was sanctioned after the airport searches. We want to get to the head of the group

No individuals who participated in Ilan Shor’s congress in Moscow have faced sanctions despite allegations of attempting to smuggle money into Moldova. The Interior Minister Adrian Efros made the statement on Rlive TV’s Rezoomat.

“Nobody is sanctioned. We understand very well what drives our citizens to take such actions. It’s about financial necessity, and everyone seizes every opportunity. No one is sanctioned for this. By documenting these citizens, we intend to make an effort to reach the higher levels of organization and management of these criminal groups and to have measures to sanction those organizers, but not the ordinary citizen”, said Adrian Efros.

The fugitive Ilan Shor announced from Moscow the creation of the political bloc “Victory” during an event organized and broadcast live on social networks on Sunday, April 21. The gathering saw the participation of members of the former unconstitutional Shor Party alongside other opposition leaders and the leadership of Gagauzia.


After the event organized by Shor in Moscow, party activists made a “spectacle” of themselves at the airport, accusing the government and police forces of pressure. Border police said they became hostile after being asked to check their luggage.

Subsequently, the head of the National Police and the chief prosecutor for combating organized crime and criminal cases announced that these individuals were targets in the party’s illegal financing case. They received between €300 and €500 to bring money into the country. Financial resources in various currencies, equivalent to more than 20 million lei, were seized during the raids.
