"We want to find out how the exchange rate game was possible and how the financial profits disappeared," Veaceslav Ionita, the head of the commission on economy, budget and finance, said after the meeting of the Standing Bureau, Info-Prim Neo reports.

A parliamentary commission was constituted last year to examine the situation of Moldovagaz, but it stopped work as the legislature was dissolved and there were called early elections, on November 28, 2010.

Moldovagaz is suspected of cheating its clients through its branch in Chisinau. The National Agency for Energy Regulation presumes that SRL Chisinau-Gaz intentionally increased the sums in consumers' bills in order to cover certain losses.
