A round table discussion entitled ‘Civil rights violation of the elected Moldovan mayor and political party leader – Ilan Shor’ is scheduled to be held at the European Parliament in Strasbourg on 14 June.

Moldova, the poorest country in the Eastern Partnership region, is reportedly being torn apart by geopolitical discords.

Citizens of Moldova are champions on applications to the European Court of Human Rights for civil rights violation. The current situation is one that will be discussed by MEPs.

In the case of Ilan Shor, the 30-year-old mayor of a small Moldovan town of Orhei, near the capital Chişinău, he was placed under house arrest.

On June 22, it will be exactly one year since he was ordered to remain in his home.

During an interview in 2015, the BBC asked Shor about a leaked report that suggests he was the prime co-ordinator and beneficiary of a complex web of transactions that pushed three leading banks to the verge of collapse.

Shor denied responsibility for the financial catastrophe.
