In the black market the right of rent of one hectare of the wood is on sale at the price to 30 thousand euros. Sellers entirely businessmen who managed during the period from 2008 to 2012 to sign lease contracts with agency of Moldsilva. Journalists of RISE Moldova have taken root into ranks of dealers in the wood and have opened the scheme by means of which those manage to get million left profits from transactions with the state good. One of such businessmen, the worker of Moldsilva, has offered us through the intermediary 4 hectares of the wood for 75 thousand euros.
In August, 2012 the Moldsilva agency responsible for management of forest fund declared that it stops rent of the wood for an indefinite term. It has occurred after the parliamentary commission has revealed a number of serious violations of Lesnoy of the code. Meanwhile some contracts have been dissolved, mostly because of failure to pay rent. Nevertheless over 6700 hectares of the wood remain under the authority of tenants for 20-40 years in exchange for an annual payment at a rate of 4025 леев for hectare.
Thus, the noble, at first sight, initiative of the authorities directed to stopping a forest lawlessness has led to emergence of a new type of business – sales of the right for rent.
The scheme is simple. The tenant, in coordination with Moldsilva, transfers the right of rent to the firm founded by him which offers for sale subsequently. Change of the founder of firm is the only indicator that the right for rent of the wood has been sold. And this with the fact that the law forbids "sublease of the timberland, their repayment and transfer of the right of possession".
For a concession of the company the businessman doesn't demand kopeks as it is only a screen behind which the transaction is made. Her subject is the wood for which the seller asks tens of thousands of euro. He prefers to encash money. In case of a bank transfer the seller offers drawing up certain fictitious contracts which have to justify the transaction.
