Moldovan-Dutch agreement to protect officers seconded to Europol, signed
An agreement between Moldova and the Netherlands on the privileges and immunities of liaison officers seconded by Moldova to Europol was signed on July 22, in The Hague.
Its purpose is to provide liaison officers, seconded by Moldova to Europol, headquartered in The Hague, and their families the same privileges and immunities enjoyed by diplomatic staff due to the provisions of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations signed on April 18, 1961.

According to the Moldovan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, the Agreement was signed by the Moldovan Ambassador Emilian Brenci and on behalf of the Netherlands - by Nora Stehouwer-Van Iersel, Ambassador for International Organizations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Europol is the European Union’s Police Office, based in The Hague, which is managing information related to crimes. Its objective is to improve the effectiveness and cooperation of the competent authorities of the EU Member States in preventing and combating serious forms of international crime and terrorism.

In 2013, Moldova has seconded a liaison officer to Europol. His work focuses on coordinating the exchange of information between the Moldovan law enforcement authorities and Europol, as well as developing institutional relations between Europol and similar bodies in Moldova.

Carmelia Albu – Ombudsman of the Public Broadcaster „Teleradio-Moldova”, in the service of community

Ombudsman service is an independent source of information, explanation and analysis of the Public Broadcaster’s programs and adherence to European standards and practices of broadcasting programs’ development.

Ombudsman is a mediator who handles complaints between a televiewer /radio-listener or a group of people and the Broadcaster. Ombudsman replies to the questions of TV viewers and Radio-listeners, receives and reviews complaints from people.

“Ombudsman” was first used in its modern sense in 1809 when the Swedish Parliament established the office of Justitieombudsman, who was to look after citizens’ interests in their dealings with government.

Later, in 1988, a similar service was established in media in France. It was a real "explosion” that caused the appearance of similar services in other world countries.
