Marina Tauber’s parliamentary immunity has been lifted today morning. Deputies voted on the decision following the request of the acting general prosecutor.

Maia Sandu, about Marina Tauber’s accusations
Maia Sandu responds to Marina Tauber’s accusations, such as that the file regarding her is a political one. The president claims that it is easier for the deputy to victimize herself, than to explain from which money her party is financed.
