CC debates complaints against pension, wage cuts

The Constitutional Court (CC) started on Thursday the debates over the complaints filed by the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) and several members of Parliament regarding the non-constitutional character of the austerity measures passed by the Government, Mediafax reports. The judges of the Joint Sections of ICCJ ruled, on June 15, to send the Constitutional Court two notifications about the non-constitutionality of some provisions of the draft laws that enforce salary and pension cuts. High Court judges made this decision after analysing aspects related to the non-constitutionality of the draft acts that instate some measures in view of rebalancing the budget, and enforce some measures related to pensions. Opposition lawmakers also filed complaints against the laws. After a six hour-debate, the court postponed making a decision until this morning.
