Corneliu Furculita is a major sponsor of the Socialists Party (PSRM) and a trusted person of President Igor Dodon. In 2014 he gets elected to Parliament on behalf of PSRM and in February 2019 he wins a new mandate on the same list.
Mr. Furculita is the owner of Exclusiv Media SRL, which controls the television channels Accent TV, TNT Exclusiv TV, NTV Moldova, and Argumenty & Fakty, a Russian-language newspaper.
Exclusiv Media was spotted in a scheme that helped PSRM strike a deal with a Russia-connected offshore firm from the Bahamas tax paradise. It received more than 30 million lei a few months before the presidential elections and lent the money to a number of party sponsors on loan conditions.
