The audit reports of the Court of Accounts of the Republic of Moldova (CoARM) are the basis of many investigations and journalistic materials, carried out by various media sources.

Recently, the Independent Press Association published the fourth edition of the "Black Book of the Waste of Public Money in the Republic of Moldova", which contains journalistic investigations, also based on the CoARM’s reports.

Thus, one of the investigations, carried out by Ziarul de Gradă, refers to the findings of the Court of Accounts, exposed in the Audit Report regarding the compliance of the administration and management of the Forestry Fund by "Moldsilva" (Decision no. 74 from December 20, 2021). The journalistic investigation "Agricultural construction with a pool and a two-level residential house on the edge of the forest of a former deputy" focuses on one of the cases in which the forest heritage of the village was damaged.

In the case of another investigation, carried out by the Mold-Street portal, "The pandemic has passed, but the uncertainties related to fiscal facilities for disinfectants remain", is based on the findings of the Court of Accounts, exposed in the Audit Report of the compliance of the administration of the fiscal facilities system in the years 2020 - 2021 (Decision no. 44 from August 2, 2022).

At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, in the spring of 2020, the authorities offered tax facilities to a number of companies for the production of disinfectants and antibacterial gels. The value of the tax exemptions was assessed by the CoARM at around 1 billion lei, with some beneficiary companies paying taxes of only a few thousand lei to the state budget.

"The Black Book of the Waste of Public Money in the Republic of Moldova" is a joint project of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (Germany) and the Independent Press Association (Republic of Moldova).

We mention that the Court of Accounts permanently maintains cooperative relations with civil society, by organizing events to promote the results of audits, activities to hold the public sector accountable for the implementation of audit recommendations, the development of studies and analyses, etc.
