Former Moldovan President Dodon extended house arrest for 30 days

A Moldovan court has extended the term of house arrest for former President Igor Dodon by 30 days. Interfax reports this with reference to the press service of the country's Prosecutor General's Office. Dodon was detained on May 24. He is accused of treason, illicit enrichment, corruption and receiving funding from a criminal organization.

“This was to be expected in the conditions of a ‘reformed justice’,” Dodon told reporters outside the courthouse.

The lawyers of the former head of state intend to appeal against the decision of the court in the Chisinau Court of Appeal.

Under arrest in jail for another 30 days will also remain the brother of the wife of the ex-president Petr Merineanu, who is a suspect in a corruption case.
