The leader of a Moldovan anticorruption party has accused Prosecutor-General Valeriu Zubco of killing a man last month while hunting.

Sergiu Mocanu, the head of the Anti-Mafia Movement, said Zubco killed Sorin Paciu, 34, during a hunting trip on December 23.

Mocanu told a news conference that "Moldova's top leadership" prevented the information from being made public and alleged that the president and vice president of Moldova's Appeals Court were present during the incident.

Zubco has not made any comment so far and has not appeared in public.

The prosecutor's office issued a statement on January 6 calling the accusations against Zubco "aberrations" but acknowledged that a 34-year-old man was injured in a hunting incident and died two days later.

RFE/RL has been declared an "undesirable organization" by the Russian government.
