Head of Moldova's Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office Viorel Morar told Ukrainski Novyny, Censor.NET reports.
"Yesterday, our law enforcement authorities tried to question him regarding illegal border crossing, but he refused to testify," he said.
According to him, the interview did not concern charges of bribery in Ukraine due to the lack of relevant powers.
He noted the Moldovan side had officially informed Ukrainian colleagues about the detention of Chaus on March 1.
As previously reported, on March 1, Chaus was detained in Moldova.
Earlier, the court overturned a request by the Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) to allow the prosecution against Judge Chaus in absentia.
On Aug. 9, 2016, NABU detectives exposed Chaus accepting a $150,000 bribe. The money was put into two glass jars that the judge was trying to bury in the yard of his private house.
Chaus is known for trying Euromaidan activists, former leader of UKROP party Hennadii Korban and Yanukovych's ally Yurii Ivaniushchenko, also known in criminal world as Yura Yenakievskyi.
On Sep. 6, 2016, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine sanctioned criminal prosecution, detention and arrest of Chaus.
