Before that, the Chisinau press wrote that, in 2008-2009, Oleg Voronin had made some expenditures of nearly 70 million MDL from his own card, while he pointed out in his income return the sum of four million MDL.
In his short press releases, Oleg Voronin said he would ask prosecutors where from journalists of the newspaper “Timpul de dimineata” (the publication that wrote about his expenditures) had found out the information about him.
At the same time, on Monday, on its web page, “Timpul” recognized the information on the expenditures was related to Oleg Voronin’s private life. The newspaper “TIMPUL” decided to publish them following the principle that – as son of the former head of state, about whom the press wrote he took advantage of his father’s status to manage his business – Oleg Voronin is already a public person”, the publication wrote.
