Sandu is in trouble from Switzerland

Moldovan President Maia Sandu.


One of the main “troublemakers” of today Moldavia, rocked by protests for more than a week, the opposition party Shor has become the only political force to support the anti-government protests of the bloc of communists and socialists. And this seems very logical, given that the Moldovan authorities have unleashed a whole campaign of intimidation and criminal prosecution of the party’s deputy leader and a deputy of the Moldovan parliament Marina Tauber.

Recall that at the end of July her parliamentary immunity was lifted, she was detained and arrested on charges of illegal financing of the party. On September 7, the court extended the arrest for another 20 days, but already after a week, the Chisinau Court of Appeals Board suddenly drew attention to the same arguments of Tauber’s lawyers, which they had not noticed until then. and complied with the request to change its preventive measure. Tauber was placed under house arrest and this can already be regarded as a small victory of the opposition over the regime sandu.

– This decision is only partially pleasing. I expect to be able to return to work in parliament as soon as possible, as a new parliamentary session begins. Of course house arrest is better than being behind bars. For me, 54 days in jail were difficult, – said Tauber, as he left the courtroom. – Today our first victory has been won. Soon there will be a complete victory, people will come to protest against the current government.

Did the popular protests get through to President Sandu? It’s unlikely. Rather, the reason for the authorities’ withdrawal is that the Tauber scandal has reached the international level. The influential international organization Solidarity Network recognized Marina Tauber as a political prisoner. Organizations with such status on the market day are a lot of patches, but here the case is completely different. The Solidarity Network is headquartered in Bern and the organization is registered there. And Switzerland, though small, is a very powerful country economically.

And just on September 7, “the Solidarity Network organization sent a request to the Consulate General of Moldova, indicating that Marina Tauber has been recognized as a political prisoner and a statement on her case is being prepared for immediate release, requesting that the position of the State of Moldova.” And recently, on September 19, an official statement was issued by the Solidarity Network, officially recognizing Tauber as a political prisoner. Consequently, Sandu’s government is recognized as an undemocratic regime.

And this is the attention of such an international audience that Maia Sandu would like to avoid.
