The decision of the government concerning the development of mobile telecommunication, GSM standard

This decision had been published in the Official Monitory on 20.10.2006.

Yet we have to mobile operators: Moldcell, and Voxtel (the last one, in the nearest future will change its name into Orange). The cost of mobile services nowadays is really expensive for citizens, and also comparing to international taxes, which are much lower. Moldova’s market, for sure, needs more concurrence in this domain.

So the tax for the license of performing mobile services represents 8 million dollars. This will be the third license of that type. And the company which will possess it will be selected through a contest. After this procedure, the selected company will transfer 4 million dollars to the bank account of the Minister of Finances, and the rest 4 will be transferred in the following 2 years.

All the details about this decision on this link http://justice.md/lex/document_rom.php?id=57C6DECA:27FC8D84

There exists a version that this license could be given to Moldtelecom, which represents the main and only telephone operator in Moldova. Besides fixed telephone services, it provides also internet services, and also cheap VOiP. Moldtelecom represents the monopolist company in Moldova and the state protects its activity, doesn’t let other operators to activate in Moldova, like it is in other countries. That's why Moldtelecom likes to raise its taxes anytime they want.

This summer, this lake suffered some very strange actions. One morning the people had to become witnesses to an ecological catastrophe. All the fish in the lake had died and emerged. The horror of this scene was increased by the awful smell of the dead fish. There where many versions about this event. But the public authorities, as the main version consider the high temperature which exhausted the fish and caused its death. Even though there was another version, that the fish was murdered purposely, for certain reasons.

After this declaration on TV, about the construction of an entertaining center, the last version seems to be very real. The public authorities hide many facts for sure.

The persons that want to take part in the examination of the texts should apply to the mentioned commission. The experts will present their reports by December 25 after which a commission will forward specialists’ recommendations to the Ministry of Education and Youth.

The integrated history was introduced in the school curriculum, since this year. Before it, there was romanian history instead. Integrated history represents the history of the part of the moldavian province, which is called Basarabia, today's Republic of Moldova. Many historians, teachers and proffessores were very frustrated by the introducing of this integrated history. They consider it an invented one. There are many facts that are changed in it, on a certain purpose. The notion of integrated history is considered to be a political invention, in order to try to represent that Moldova had been historically separated from Romania, which is evidently wrong.

World events

On November, 5th Hussein has been recognized guilty on business about murder 148 shiits in place Shiite town of Dujail in 1982 after the attack accomplished there on a presidential train. The court has recognized also guilty on business about massacre and has sentenced to life imprisonment of former vice-president of Iraq Taha Yasin Ramadana.
According to Saddam’s opinion, this punishment is humiliating. As a military criminal he considers a bullet more correctly in this situation.
The reasons of this sanction are surely political first of all. American republicans are being blamed for the Iraq war, and this verdict could serve as an advantage for them, on the intermediate congressional elections, which will take place on the next day.
The legal procedure on Saddam took place more than a year. The case was investigated by 5 judges, which were replacing one another for several reasons. The 3 lawyers of Saddam Hussein were killed.

Even though the verdict seems to be very cruel, some political analysts consider that Saddam could be amnestied.
