Finance Ministry denies payment of bonuses claimed by CSM

The Finance Ministry stressed on Friday that it has not paid the bonuses requested by the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM), although according to CSM’s spokesperson, the Finance Ministry had transferred the salary rights, including also the 50 per cent bonus for risk and neurological overexertion, for the month of June. Moreover, the Government has also approved in an extraordinary meeting an ordinance through which the payments related to the 50 per cent bonus for magistrates and the paralegals from Justice can be operated by Finance Ministry only with the approval of the Court of Audit. The ministry also filed recourse last Thursday with the Court of Appeal, thing which suspends the execution of the decision of the court.

Premier Emil Boc assured that the problem of the funding of the judicial system could be settled through the direct allocation of the stamp fee to tribunals, and the problem of the salaries of the magistrates could be settled through the adoption of the Unique Salary Law. The Government together with the magistrates must find solutions “in this difficult time of crisis,” said Boc. (C. S.)
