Judgment no. 2 of the Constitutional Court of Moldova of 20 January 2015 refers to the issue of parliamentary immunity and the cases of termination of a mandate of a member of Parliament as foreseen by the Constitution of the Republic of Moldova. The Constitutional Court laid down the scope interpretation of Articles 69 and 70 of the Constitution, adjudicating that a Deputy sentenced with a valid court judgment does not enjoy the privilege of parliamentary immunity. Also, the privilege is not applied where a national court recognizes a sentence passed by a court of a foreign state. A person sentenced with a valid court judgment for a crime committed with intention or sentenced to a prison term loses its right to be elected, hence cannot be legitimately elected to the Parliament. He/she also loses his/her mandate ex lege after the judgment had been passed.
