Auffälllig ist hier das die KAS (Konrad Adenauer Stiftung) auch hier nur dummes Zeug von sich gibt, nach dem Motto:
Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt. Moldawien, spielt eine Rolle auch bei dem Mord an dem Anwalt: S. Magnitski
The Moldovan House of Fraud
In the winter of 2008, more than US$52 million poured through the bank accounts of two ghost companies based in Moldova. These companies were conduits for money that a ring of Russian state officials and organized crime figures stole through a complex tax fraud scheme.
The fraud was exposed by Russian lawyer Sergey Magnitski who was working for Hermitage Capital, an American owned company that was unknowingly used by the ring. However, Russian officials instead jailed Magnitsky and he died from mistreatment in a Russian prison. The case has led to an acrimonious dispute among the governments of Russia, the United States and several European Union countries.
The Organized Crime and Corrupting Reporting Project (OCCRP) has found that more than one-fifth of the money was channelled by two companies, Bunicon-Impex SRL and Elenast-Com SRL — to beneficiaries through a maze of companies stretching from Russia’s far east to Cyprus.
The OCCRP investigation is at the heart of official inquiries in the Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Estonia and Switzerland. Swiss authorities froze bank accounts associated with some of the persons and companies mentioned in our reporting.
Now OCCRP reporters have found new evidence that the fraud Magnitsky uncovered was part of a larger money laundering operation….

In an eerily similar scene, six months earlier in London, the same blonde man fired six bullets from a Makarov semi-automatic pistol into a Moldovan-Russian banker as he exited a London taxi near his apartment. As he left, he quietly dropped the gun.
Both attacks were classic organized crime hits by a professional hired killer. Police identified him as Vitalie Proca, 33, from the Republic of Moldova. OCCRP along with the Guardian traced Proca’s life and business relationships and found him connected to an ultraviolent network of criminals. This network of hit men is paid to pull the trigger to settle conflicts between criminal gangs. Together they are known to be responsible for a number of murders and attempted murders of alleged criminal figures. Police say they are also involved in cigarette smuggling, trafficking in persons and other organized crime activities.
The Romanian police say that the Bucharest attack was a case of mistaken identity. Proca mistook the innocent man for Puiu Mironescu, the alleged leader of a Romanian organized crime group. Acco
