The Intelligence and Security Service addresses citizens in the context of parliamentary elections
The Intelligence and Security Service of Moldova (ISS) notifies about increased activity of some forces aimed at undermining the national security framework. According to the ISS, their hostile interest, having an internal or external origin, is clearly directed towards destabilization of the social balance in the context on the parliamentary elections of 30 November. The Service, together with other public authorities and based on legal provisions, is implementing an entire set of measures for prevention and combating of such forces in order to not admit negative developments and to exclude security risks.
In this context, the ISS addresses a message to citizens, asking them to be alert and avoid becoming victims of provocations, regardless of their connotation and origin. The ISS also appeals to leaders and opinion makers, as well as to electoral contestants, urging them to avoid and abstain from declarations and activities that might generate insecurity. // sis.md
