The National Union of Judges from Romania (UNJR) requests the minister of justice, Catalin Predoiu, through an open letter, to not assent the draft of the unitary pension law, because it allegedly is against Constitution and creates special privileges for the employees from the intelligence services. “UNJR requests the minister of justice to not assent the project of the pension law in the current variant further to the analysis of this normative act that he will make, because this project does not comply with the Constitution of Romania and does not fulfill the legislative technique criteria,” reads the document quoted by “Romania libera.”

According to UNJR letter, signed by Dana Garbovan, president of the Union, numerous provisions from the project of the pension law contravene the constitutional norms, the European Convention of Human Rights, and the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights. Basically, UNJR considers that it violates the constitutional principles of the non-retroactivity of the law, of equal treatment of the citizens in front of the law, and of non-discrimination.
