Grosu asked the European Council to support Moldova in the “fight” with the fugitive oligarchs

The President of the Parliament, Igor Grosu, received yesterday, March 28th, the President of the European Council, Charles Michel. “It is a strong signal for our reform agenda and European path. We understand that we are on the right path and that we have no more time to waste”, writes Igor Grosu.

The official mentioned in a message published on Facebook:

“Together with Mr. Charles Michel, we talked about the importance of justice reform and declared that a state will only be functional when we have a fair justice system. In this context, we reviewed the latest events in the system and conveyed to him that we are counting on brave and integrity judges who will unlock the situation. At the same time, we asked that the European Union align itself with the sanctions imposed by the United States and Great Britain in relation to the Moldovan oligarchs who fled the country and are now remotely involved in destabilizing the constitutional order. Our relevant institutions are working to prevent the destabilization that these individuals are trying to cause, but we need to strengthen their capacities,” the official announced.


Among other issues addressed during the discussions, there were those regarding the consolidation of the security and energy sectors, the increase in competitiveness and the increase in the export share of agricultural products on the EU market, the reduction of roaming tariffs in the EU, and the approximation of legislation.

“In the context of granting the status of a candidate country for accession, I stated that the Parliament, the Government, and the Presidency joined their efforts to implement the 9 recommendations proposed by the European Commission, and we continue to count on the political support of the EU member states in this country project”, Grosu also announced.

We remind you that yesterday the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, also met with the president of the country, Maia Sandu. The officials addressed several topical issues, including the Summit of the European Political Community, which Moldova will host on June 1, 2023.
