In September 2018, seven Turkish teachers from Orizont High School in Chisinau and Ceadir-Lunga were detained while leaving for work, and then expelled. Authorities accused them of links to Islamist organizations, even if the events took place before Erdogan’s visit to Moldova. In the country of origin, the Turkish teachers were convicted and sent to prison. Only one of the seven teachers was freed from prison last year.
