PSD MP Sebastian Ghita denounces judiciary’s involvement in politics


PSD MP Sebastian Ghita, considered close to Premier Victor Ponta, suggested in an interview for EVZ that the judiciary is using double standards and is getting involved in political games: “I said it and I believe that Victor Ponta and PSD could have won more votes had they told Romanians that today we are approaching the number of five million citizens involved in criminal files. We didn’t do it. We will continue to support the act of justice. But we will not close our eyes out of fear when we see abuses and illegalities. We, party members, are responsible before the people. The elections are not a choice between PICCJ, DNA, DIICOT, SRI, SIE, STS and other alphabet agencies. I haven’t seen them on the posters. People place their trust in the mayor, the president, the MP, and legitimize them by voting every four years. That is how democracy works! The judiciary is applying the law, not making the law! PSD backed Victor Ponta in all decisions concerning the judiciary and the services. But it has to be fair to all. It can no longer have double standards. It will lose credibility if it gets mired in political games,” Ghita said in the interview.
In January, before USL’s break-up, Sebastian Ghita stated in an interview for ‘Bursa’ daily: “I believe the judiciary is now separated from politics and economics. The files are no longer done and judged on the basis of political pressures or briberies. The judiciary has ended up being sufficiently mature as to be able to protect itself too, it no longer needs the “protection” of politicians. It will no longer be possible to suspect even Basescu of this. Tiberiu Nitu, Laura Kovesi, Lidia Stanciu, the new teams within the CSM, Robert Cazanciuc, these are people above any suspicions.”
