The National Anticorruption Center, under it`s quality of a law institution in the Republic of Moldova, being a specialized body for preventing and combating corruption, acting on the principles of legality and impartiality, starting from the obligation to act in strict compliance with the Constitution of the Republic of Moldova, makes the following statement:
The NAC is a non-political body, doesn`t provide assistance and doesn`t support any political party. Today, public institutions in the Republic of Moldova are in an unprecedented situation, when they are called upon by certain political forces not to comply with the decisions of the supreme court - the Constitutional Court.
In our activity, we unconditionally apply all the decisions of the Constitutional Court, even if some of them, in certain situations, made it impossible to hold people accountable. In the current crisis, we draw attention to the fact that no one can assume the right to arbitrarily decide which of the Constitutional Court rulings to respect and which they don`t. The confusion of the unconditional application of the Court`s judgments is a dangerous precedent.
Therefore, being aware that the non-respect of the Law entails criminal liability, we urge all the civil servants to conduct themselves strictly with the law, and not to be trained in political games and the struggle for power.
The National Anticorruption Center continues to perform it`s duties in the usual regime.
