Today, the court in Chisinau will meet for the first hearings of the case against Valery Pasat, external relations advisor to the chief of RAO UES, ex-defense minister and director of Moldova's information and security service.
As was reported earlier, Pasat was detained in Chisinau on March 11, 2005. On March 18, 2005, the Moldovan general prosecutor's office charged him with abuse of authority when concluding the sales agreement for 21 MiG aircrafts with the USA. The prosecution maintains that Pasat exceeded his powers, for the aircrafts could not be sold without being included into the privatization program, and puts the resulting damages at USD55.7m.
On May 13, the Moldovan general prosecutor's office opened another case against Pasat.
