R. of Moldova: Gov’t decides to lift requirement of passports for EU citizens, the Constitutional Court rules decision is illegal

The Moldovan government approved on Tuesday a decision that annulled the border passport requirement for citizens of the European Union. The government amended the Decision no. 765, dated September 18, 2014 regarding the ‘approval of the list of travel documents accepted by foreigners crossing the state border of the Republic of Moldova’. According to the press service of the Moldovan government the amendments mean that EU citizens will no longer be required to submit passports or biometric ID cards to the customs at the border with Republic of Moldova, but can cross the border only on the basis of simple identity cards.

However, on Wednesdat the Constitutional Court in Chisinau ruled that the above mentioned government decision is legally null and void. According to the court, quoted by ziare.com, all government decisions on Tuesday are null, following the resignation filed by PM Chiril Gaburici last week, currently being interim PM.
