Justice Ministry launches debate on faster trial procedures law

Minister of Justice, Catalin Predoiu, said yesterday that he would launch for public debate this week a law to accelerate trial procedures, and that he had sent the Strategy of Developing the Judiciary as a Public Service 2010-2014 to all legal institutions concerned.

The minister announced that he would most likely present this bill, which he called “The small reform bill,” on Thursday. He added that the draft includes provisions to simplify subpoena procedures, court competences and those necessary to rule appeals, to serve the interest of the law at the highest court.

On the same occasion, Predoiu added that he had sent the Strategy of Developing the Judiciary as a Public Service, drawn up by the Ministry of Justice relying on the theses and norms voted by the government, to the Superior Council of Magistracy, the High Court, appeal courts, the Public Ministry and professional associations of magistrates.

“The Strategy is to be discussed by representatives of the judiciary and then subjected to government approval and remitted to legal representatives, because it relies on an integrating and comprehensive view of the act of Justice,” Predoiu said.

The minister added that the bill is open for dialogue, which may adjust it for the better, before being sent to the government for approval and that, relying on the Strategy, a Plan of Action is to be drafted.
