The goal of Veaceslav Platon was to rescue the citizens of Moldova from the iniquities happening in this country, but the "mafia" government stopped him. This is the opinion of the Ukrainian attorney Alexei Shevchuk.

Today, during  the press conference in Kiev, Alexei Shevchuk stated that numerous violations had been committed  in Platon’s case.

Only my defendant has the information about the theft of the billion from the banking system. He wanted to protect the Republic of Moldova and its citizens; he wanted to inform the international community about the iniquities in Moldova. He was ready to confess everything to Ukrainian authorities about how the billion had been stolen. Veaceslav Kobalev knew that he would be under political pressure, but he was not scared”,  Alexei Shevchuk declared.

The Russian attorney Ilya Novikov – who earlier defended the interests of the Ukrainian pilot Nadya Savchenko – claims that the extradition process of Veaceslav Platon is based upon hidden interests of Ukrainian and Moldovan decision markers.

The most important argument of prosecutors is the missing document, confirming the issue of the identity card on Veaceslav Platon’s name. There are competent authorities, which shall verify the legality of documents; however we witnessed a rapid process of examination and extradition of Mr. Kobalev. I am certain that without a political agreement, such procedure of extradition would not be possible. I have a great deal of respect for the Ukrainian President, Petro Poroshenko. I would request the President to demand necessary security measures to be ensured for Mr. Kobalev in the Moldovan penitentiary”, Ilya Novikov stated.

We remind you that Veaceslav Platon, arrested by the Ukrainian authorities at the request of Moldovan prosecutors, was extradited to theRepublicofMoldovalast night. He is under criminal investigation for fraud and money laundering in large proportions, leading to an over 800 million lei damage to Banca de Economii  .

On July 25th , an arrest warrant for 30 days was issued on the name of Veaceslav Platon  and he is wanted internationally. Exactly on the same day, the so called “No. 1 raider of CIS”, Veaceslav Platon, was arrested by the Ukrainian authorities in Kiev.
