Andrei Iavorschi has been reinstated as head of the National Probation Inspectorate (NPI) and will return to the office on Monday, 26 February. A relevant order was reportedly signed by Justice Minister Veronica Mihailov-Moraru on 23 February.

The document was published on a Telegram channel on the morning of Friday, 23 February. Representatives of the press service of the Ministry of Justice could not be reached by phone to confirm or deny the authenticity of the document.

In the meantime, Realitatea contacted Iavorschi by phone.

“It is not a question of the reappointment but of the termination of the suspension from office. I have been informed about the decision, and I will return to work on Monday,” Iavorschi told Realitatea.

Prosecutors found that the suspended head of the National Probation Inspectorate, Andrei Iavorschi, accused of subjecting the institution to unjustified expenses, did not commit any illegal acts. Prosecutors ordered his removal from criminal proceedings, the lifting of his provisional suspension from office, and the closure of the criminal case. An order was signed by anti-corruption prosecutor Vitalie Ivanov. According to Andrei Iavorschi, on 31.01.2024, the Minister of Justice, Veronica Mihailov-Moraru, was informed of the decision. At the same time, the reinstatement and payment of salaries for the suspension period was requested.

After the criminal proceedings against him were terminated, the suspended head of the National Probation Inspectorate (NPI), Andrei Iavorschi, claims that Sergiu Litvinenko pressured him to resign. According to Iavorschi, the former minister suggested that he should not try to take up public office again.

Iavorschi says he does not rule out the possibility that new criminal cases could be opened against him. Also, he is demanding, according to the ordinance, that he be paid a salary of around 300,000-400,000 lei, which he has not received, as well as a late payment penalty of approximately 1000 lei per day.
