The Prime Minister of Moldova Chiril Gaburici announced on Friday his resignation, a day after the prosecution questioned him on his high-school and university diplomas.

Gaburici expressed regret that questions on his studies had become “an instrument of political game”, making no comments on the contents of the allegations, Radio Free Europe reports.

He said that he was a manager not a politician and that the country had to change its political system.

Gaburici, a pro-European businessman and candidate of the Liberal Democratic Party became Prime Minister in February.

With his move, he wants to ensure that the authorities will carry out an objective and transparent investigation.

Earlier this week, he called on the state prosecutor and the head of the central bank to resign for failure to act effectively over the disappearance of USD 1 B from three Moldovan banks.
