Moldova (bbabo.net), - Wanted politician and businessman Ilan Shor again left Israel, where he is hiding from Moldovan justice (sentenced in absentia by Chisinau to 15 years in prison, his Shor party was declared unconstitutional). The head of the National Central Bureau of Interpol in Chisinau, Viorel Centiu, stated this on the Jurnal TV channel.
It is unknown where Shor is now. According to Tsentiu, Shor left Israel on the morning of February 1 using an Israeli passport.
“The route and flight number are unknown. Israeli authorities did not provide this information. So far we have no information that he has returned to Israel. All documents of Ilan Shor, including Israeli ones, are included in the Interpol database. The obligation to detain him extends to all 196 Interpol member countries,” added the international police representative.
On the evening of February 7, Shor said on social networks that he had held negotiations with the Chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Leonid Kalashnikov. However, he did not say where the meeting took place.
The Russian senator also shared his impressions of this meeting. Kalashnikov confirmed that Russia has always been on Moldova’s side: “It purchased fruits, supplied cheap energy resources, providing oil and gas at a very affordable price.”
“It was a pleasure to speak with Ilan today. Expressed my respect to him. I will always support those who not only speak and call, but profess cooperation with the Eurasian Economic Union and Russia in their political struggle,” Kalashnikov said.
Let us remind you that Moldovan law enforcement officers and Interpol have already had to state several times that Ilan Shor is leaving his country of residence in an “unknown direction.” However, none of the countries where he was likely to reside took measures to detain him.
As bbabo.net reported, Ilan Shor calls his criminal prosecution in Moldova the revenge of President Maia Sandu because he and members of the Shor party “are fighting for justice for people, for the good life of people and against the lawlessness of the current regime.”
The Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Moldova several times unsuccessfully sought the extradition of Shor, who continues active political activities, accusing him of “attempts to change power in Chisinau and destabilize the situation in the interests of Russia.” At the end of last year, Moldovan authorities informed Israel that Shor already had the status of a convicted person according to the decision of the Chisinau Court of Appeal.
The Ambassador of the State of Israel in Chisinau, Yoel Lion, explained to the Moldovan side that the decision to extradite Shor should be made by the Israeli courts if they confirm the dubious accusations of the Moldovan law enforcement system.
“Shor lives in Israel as a citizen of this country and has not committed any crimes against the state of Israel,” Lyon emphasized.
