Parliament Candidate Beaten Up and Kidnapped

Artur Reşetnikov, a communist candidate in the Moldovan elections scheduled for Sunday, the 28th, claims that he was kidnapped and tortured by unknown persons on Monday night. According to Reşetnikov, also a former chief of the Moldovan secret service, three Russian-speaking men attacked him and took him to a secret location. He claims that the perpetrators tortured him for several hours, trying to squeeze compromising secret about the Moldovan Communists’ Party leader, Vladimir Voronin.

Reşetnikov was eventually abandoned on a street in Chişinău, Moldova’s capital. He is now being given treatment for his wounds. The opposition Communist party is the top favourite in the upcoming elections, with 37 to a little over 40 percent in the voting intentions, according to various polls.
