Center Party launches signature campaign in support of suspended mayor Edgar Savisaar ({{commentsTotal}})


The Center Party has started collecting signatures in support of Edgar Savisaar, the Mayor of Tallinn and Center Party chairman suspended from office for the duration of an investigation into bribery allegations. The party hopes to reach 40,000 signatures in 10 days.

The signatures are collected by several teams across Tallinn. No online petition has been launched so far.

The full list will be presented to the City Council, which should then inquire from the Supreme Court if it's lawful to suspend a mayor just on suspicion charges.

Tallinn Mayor and Estonian opposition leader Savisaar was suspended from his office by the Harju County Court last Wednesday, October 30. He is being suspected of taking bribes from four Estonian businessmen.
