Wikileaks cable reveals attempted bribery by former Moldovan president

A US embassy cable published by wikileaks last night reveals that former Moldovan president and Communist leader, Vladimir Voronin, tried to bribe the presidential candidate of the ‘Alliance for European Integration’, Marian Lupu.

According to the leaked report, Mr Lupu told the US ambassador that in September 2009 the then acting president Voronin had offered him 5 mio US $ to join the Communist government let Voronin become speaker of parliament. Mr Lupu turned this offer down as well as the second offer for which president Voronin doubled the sum. Four days later, on September 14, Mr Voronin resigned.
