92-79-79 is a line that has been active since 1 June 2007, which can be called by people who are informed of a case of corruption to get free legal advice.
This line was launched under the "Anti-Corruption Public Awareness Campaign" project implemented by the Centre for Analysis and Prevention of Corruption with the financial support of the British Embassy in Chisinau. To advertise the line a national campaign was launched aimed at raising awareness of people and educating them in the field of anticorruption.
This anti-corruption hotline has been active from 1 June 2007 to 31 December 2009, Monday through Friday, from 9.00 to 21.00, when it is attended by four lawyers/operators, who provide free consultations by phone. Also, lawyers employed by the project offer the option of referral of cases to law enforcement authorities or, if citizens do not trust authorities, these cases can be sent for investigation to journalists, with the consent of the informant.
To ensure the highest quality of journalists’ work, the seminar "Legal dimension of journalistic investigations of corruption cases" was organized in the period 30 May - 1 June 2007. It was attended by 15 representatives of the media. The trainers were representatives of Law enforcement authorities, the Centre for Combating Economic Crime and Corruption, Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office, General Prosecutor’s Office and Ministry of Interior.
Subsequently, the seminar was repeated three times in September 2008, for a total number of 80 journalists, including those from rayons and Russian-speaking people.
