Bostinaru and Severin interpellate EC

Social-Democrat MEPs Victor Bostinaru and Adrian Severin have interpellated the European Commission, asking it to give them a written answer concerning the influence that the European Executive has on the Justice system in Romania. Severin and Bostinaru point out the preventive arrest decision taken in the case of Constantin Niculescu, the Social-Democrat President of the Arges County Council. “Currently the only institution that monitors corruption in Romania is the European Com­mission, through the Mecha­nism for Cooperation and Veri­fication. Consequently, it seems the Romanian courts are not taking decisions on the basis of law and of the objective information at hand, but on the basis of the influence exercised by external bodies, in this case by the European Union” the two state. Likewise, they ask the Commission whether this pressure is compatible with its statute and with the separation of powers and the independence of justice principles.
