In light of the recent political events in the Republic of Moldova, and certain misstatements which might appear in mass-media, Trans-Oil Group of Companies reiterates that its sole and only shareholder is Mr. Vaja Jhashi. Trans-Oil Group of Companies never had in the past and currently has no affiliation and/or businesses with any past or current political party or individual, neither directly or indirectly. The non-affiliation has been continuously confirmed via various due diligences conducted by international financial institutions. We are confident and optimistic that political parties will find democratic consensus very soon, serving the best interests of the people of the Republic of Moldova.
