O Chief of Staff, Viorel Centiu, confirmed that the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) received a negative response from Russia, which he described as absurd.

“Russia resorts to Article 3 of its Constitution to explain its non-interference in Shor’s case. Let me remind you that this article refers to non-interference in political, military, religious or rational matters”, he explained.

In this sense, he highlighted that the Interpol File Control Commission indicated in 2021 that the request to issue an arrest warrant for Shor and request his extradition was “completely legal”, as indicated by the Moldovan television channel Jurnal TV.

He also indicated that Russia previously noted that Shor had not entered the country since 2014. However, the opponent himself later declared that he was in Russia. “We can say that Russia is not fulfilling its obligations as a member state of the organization,” Centiu continued.

Last week, Interpol asked Russia to locate, detain and extradite Shor, who recently released an image of a meeting with a deputy in Moscow.

Russian justice also banned the Moldovan politician from holding positions in the country’s financial system for a period of five years, and confiscated all his assets.
