Hundreds of supporters and opponents of former Moldovan Prime Minister Vlad Filat gathered outside the Buiucani courthouse in Chisinau, Sunday, as the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party awaits news on the extension of the period of his arrest. Filat was detained on Thursday on corruption charges. Supporters of the pro-EU politician held banners and placards backing Filat, calling for his freedom outsider the courthouse. The counter-demonstrators demanded that Filat be brought to justice, chanting anti-corruption slogans, including "Filat in jail! Plahotniuc in jail! Bring a billion!" The two groups were separated by a large police presence. Filat was arrested Thursday evening under a warrant issued by the Moldovan National Anti-Corruption Center (NAC) after parliament voted to revoke the erstwhile leader's immunity from arrest. His pre-trial detention period will expire on October 18 at 17.15 local time. If the court does not extend the arrest warrant, Filat will walk free. The former prime minister is implicated in several corruption cases, with many detractors calling for his criminal prosecution following his alleged role in the disappearance of $1.5 billion (€1.35 billion) from three Moldovan banks in November 2014. The court has also accused Filat of accepting a reported $60 million (€52 million) from Dufremol company director Ilan Shor during his premiership.
