LAST MINUTE! Alexandr Stoianoglo could resign. Expert: “All general prosecutors left after the change of power”


The General Prosecutor, Alexandr Stoianoglo, would no longer hold the position of Head of the General Prosecutor’s Office. This is the opinion of the constitutional law expert Teodor Cârnaț, according to whom Stoianoglo will leave office voluntarily. The statements in this regard were made public at a national television station.

“I believe that Mr. Stoianoglo will voluntarily leave the position of general prosecutor. All general prosecutors left after the power changed. I don’t think this case will be an exception. At the same time, the Constitutional Court (CCM) declared unconstitutional the competition by which Stoianoglo became prosecutor general, but the decision is not retroactive, but, referring to another decision of the Superior Council of Magistracy regarding the appointment of SCM members, the decree appointing Stoianoglo to office is illegal, declares Cârnaț.

We specify that previously, the expert Teodor Cîrnat also spoke about the fact that Alexandr Stoianoglo could be revoked from the position of head of the General Prosecutor’s Office, and this would be possible by a Decision of the Constitutional Court.

It may be that in the near future, Mr. Stoianoglo, will be removed from office by a decision of the Constitutional Court, as this Decision is similar to the CCM Decision of 21 May 2020 which stated that the Prosecutor General was appointed by an unconstitutional law, but paragraph 83 stated that this did not affect the procedure for the appointment of the Prosecutor General. Today the Court invigorated its jurisprudence and said: Even if these 4 members of the SCM were appointed a year ago and the principle of irrevocability applies to them, in order to guarantee the supremacy of the constitution, we revoke them from office, but the decisions adopted with the presence of these 4 members of the SCM are legal until today, previously declared Cârnaț.

The situation is similar, the lawyer said, so the Constitutional Court opened Pandora’s Box.

I believe that the President of the Republic of Moldova, tomorrow, will submit a notification to the Constitutional Court requesting the declaration of unconstitutionality of the decree of former President Dodon by which he was appointed Prosecutor General Alexandr Stoianoglo, because he was appointed by an unconstitutional law. There are two similar things and the Constitutional Court today opened the Pandora’s Box, Cîrnaț pointed out.

We remind you that, on May 21, 2020, the Constitutional Court examined the complaint filed last year by several deputies. The judges concluded that the competition by which Alexandr Stoianoglo was elected as prosecutor general is unconstitutional. However, the judges stressed that Alexandr Stoianoglo cannot be dismissed for this reason.

On July 11, 2021, early parliamentary elections took place in the Republic of Moldova. These were won by PAS, which garnered almost 53% of the vote and 63 seats in Parliament.

It should be noted that previously, PAS criticized the activity of the Prosecutor General, Alexandr Stoianoglo, after the latter had not made progress in the resonance files, and he is suspected of having favored the Socialist Party which until recently was in power.
