Justice Minister Tudorel Toader said that the first conclusion of his meeting this Wednesday with several ambassadors is that there is no challenge on their part to the freedom to legislate and the need to amend the Justice laws in line with the constitutional requirements, and assured that none of the diplomats took issue with the subject.

“As a first conclusion, no one contests the freedom to legislate, no one challenges the necessity to amend the laws of Justice in accordance with the constitutional requirements, with European standards, no one challenges the necessity to adopt fair solutions in the laws of Justice,” Minister Tudorel Toader said at the end of the meeting at the seat of the Ministry of Justice with several ambassadors.

In reply as to whether the diplomats had expressed criticism, Toader assured there had been no reproach and that they had “an absolutely constructive, clarifying discussion, as it is normal and necessary for institutions to have.”

Justice Minister Tudorel Toader met on Wednesday with ten diplomatic mission heads – specifically with the ambassadors of Belgium, Canada, Estonia, France, Germany, UK, the Netherlands, Slovenia, the US and Sweden – to discuss the recent legislative developments, the progress in the fulfillment of the 12 CVM benchmarks, the balance and separation of powers in the state, as well as the structuring of the rule of law.
