Some 20,000 people are protesting against Moldova’s government for the eighth straight day, demanding a probe into the estimated $1.5 billion that disappeared from three Moldovan banks.
Speaking Romanian and Russian, protesters in Chisinau, the capital, on Sunday demanded the resignation of the president, the general prosecutor, the national bank governor and others. They also want an early election and to form a new political party.
The anti-government protest started Sept. 6 when tens of thousands rallied in a pedestrian square. A few hundred protesters remain camped out in the square.
