Dissemination of the Usatiuc-Ghimpu-Graur Collection
The most significant event relating to the wider dissemination of the collection is the copying of the collection files undertaken by Igor Cașu, who had access to this collection in the spring of 2010, due to his position as a member of the Presidential Commission for the Study and Evaluation of the Communist Regime in Moldova. He copied the materials related to the Usatiuc–Ghimpu–Graur affair and subsequent trial. At the moment, he owns these materials in digital format.
Part of the dissemination should have also been the transfer of the collection to the National Archive of the Republic of Moldova (ANRM), in accordance with a special decision taken as part of the legal measures stipulated according to the above-mentioned Commission’s recommendations. The transfer occurred in March 2011 and should have resulted in free access of interested researchers and ordinary citizens to these files. However, the National Archive still has not granted access to the collection, invoking issues related to insufficient storage capacity and lack of staff to properly catalogue the information. At this moment, public access is still restricted.
