Moldovan Interior Minister Oleg Balan has since confirmed that a criminal investigation regarding the possible forgery of Gaburici's college diploma has been launched, with questions also arising about the premier's high school diploma. Deschide.md has reported that the high school diploma shows signs of forgery, with questions emerging over inaccuracies, and the school director's stamps and signatures. Balan stated that further information on the charges may be presented as early as next week.
Publica TV has reported that given Gaburici's high office, the case has been transferred to the General Prosecutor's Office.
Gaburici, 38, was confirmed as prime minister in February by the country's parliament, following elections late last year. Prior to his appointment, he had served for the Moldovan and Azeri affiliates of Swedish telecom giant TeliaSonera.
