The magistrates of the Cluj-Napoca Tribunal on Thursday set a new term in court in the corruption case against the president of the Vrancea County Council (CJ), Marian Oprisan (vice-president of PSD). Upon leaving the courtroom, Oprisan appealed to the Superior Council of Magistracy to stop putting pressure on judges. “(…) It became norm in Romania, of late, because I clearly know I am innocent and I was a thief neither before 2005, when Traian Basescu came to power, nor after 2005. I mean that justice must be unbiased, independent and in the service of the citizen,” Oprisan stated, quoted by Mediafax. Asked what he thinks about the verification ordered by CSM at the Cluj-Napoca Tribunal, at the request of the general prosecutor of Romania, the PSD leader said that “what Ms. Laura Codruta Kovesi did is a form of pressure upon Romanian magistrates.” Oprisan added that, in his opinion, this case was ordered by President Traian Basescu. On June 5, Laura Codruta Kovesi notified the Judiciary Inspection of CSM over possible disciplinary problems committed by the Cluj judges that try the corruption case of the CJ Vrancea president.
