The Executive Board of the Party of the European Left (EL), assembled in Berlin last weekend, decided to address a letter to the authorities of the Republic of Moldova demanding the immediate release of Grigore Petrenco, former vice-president of the EL, and  six other activists who have been arrested during the protest demonstration on September 6, 2015 and are still in prison since then.

The European Left urges for the end of political repression and for an objective investigation into this case, according to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms which Moldova should warrantee as a member state of the Council of Europe.
