On the name of the businessman Veaceslav Platon might be initiated other penal causes. The statement was made for Deschide.MD by the chief of Anti-corruption Prosecutor’s Office, Viorel Morari, at the time I called him to make sure how many cases and accusations has currently Platon in Chisinau. 

Morari said that Platon was extradited on two accusations: money laundering and fraud. 

"Now on his name there is a penal cause with two accusations: money laundering in huge proportions and fraud. We are conducting many penal actions in order to update the content of other files in which he might be involved. Beforehand I can say that there are three more cases in which we are investigating a possible involvement of this citizen, but for now he does not have any status in them. The prosecutors are working on building up evidence, which will allow accusing him on other crimes. More specifically we will talk on this subject most probably next week after we sum up all gathered information", stated Viorel Morari.

We remind that Veaceslav Platon was extradited on the Monday to the Republic of Moldova. On Tuesday, the Buiucani Court was about to consider the prosecutors' requirement on the prolongation of the arrest warranty, however, the hearing was postponed at the prosecutors' request.

Platon has been escorted by masked men, being handcuffed. Passing by journalists he managed to state that "He is not guilty of anything", "All the money stole Vlad Plahotniuc" and that he needs a "toothbrush, clothes, shorts, sneakers and something to eat".

Veaceslav Platon is criminally investigated for fraud and money laundering in huge proportions, fact which damaged the Banca de Economii with over 800 million lei.  

The prosecutors concluded that the money, obtained through deception as credits, were transferred on the accounts of some offshore companies, to conceal its illegal origin, and later, a part of it was used for extinguishing some credits in the banks from the Republic of Moldova.
