Valeriu Miţul is a Transnistrian Moldovan politician, an opponent of the separatist regime that is in power in Transnistria.

Political activity[edit]

Miţul was a participant in the 1992 War of Transnistria on behalf of Moldovan governmental forces. He is the mayor of Corjova village, considered by separatist authorities as a suburb of Dubăsari.

As result of his opposition to authorities from Tiraspol, he was arrested several times by Transnistrian police, most recently on 13 May 2007.[1]

Miţul was elected mayor of Corjova in the Moldovan local election, 2003, as a candidate representing the ASLMN party.

During the Moldovan municipal elections on June 3, 2007, the Transnistrian authorities prevented the inhabitants of Corjova from participating in the elections. Miţul, who was up for re-election, received death threats.[2][3]
