Udrea Commission prepares final draft reports

The parliamentary commission investigating into the Tourism Ministry expenditures yesterday established individual member responsibilities for the preparation of the final report, with drafts expected the following Tuesday, Commission President Ludovic Orban said. He added that, the following Tuesday, a vote would be taken in the commission on a proposal to refer Minister Elena Udrea to the prosecutors for the violation of the Constitution, of the ministerial liability law and of the Regulations of the Chamber of Deputies by refusing to answer the Commission’s questions.

On the other hand, Minister Udrea resumed her accusations and criticism of the Commission pointing out in a press statement that the only purpose of the investigation commission was to fabricate criminal charges against her for facts that do not exist.

‘As they have found no violation of the law that could be held against me in my activity as a minister, the members of this commission are now trying to accuse me of breaking the Constitution, the Ministerial liability law and the Regulations of the Chamber of Deputies, although I have also observed each of the three normative acts,’ Udrea said.

She added that, striving to forcefully discredit her, the members of the commission again proved not only ill faith, but also a gross ignorance of the law, because a possible violation of the Constitution or of the regulations of an institution, even the Chamber of Deputies, does not involve criminal liability.

‘A certain fact is that the commission operates illegally and abusively. Counting on their majority in Parliament, PSD and PNL have come to the situation where they agree to break the law by vote. In their senator or deputy chairs, the PSD and PNL MPs are also establishing what’s legal and what’s illegal, what’s fair and what’s unfair in Romania, ignoring the justice system and all the other institutions of a democratic state’, Udrea said.
