The theft of one billion USD from Moldova’s banking system during 2012-2014 was a real shock to the country and its citizens. It still has a dramatic impact on the life of all Moldavans and the functioning of society.

Another key objective of the study is to contribute to the return of the stolen money to the citizens of the Republic of Moldova.
