The Senate adopted, yesterday, the bill for the application of the Criminal Code and for the modification of pieces of legislation which include criminal law provisions, initiated by the Government. “(…) The Codes will be implemented in the very near future. The bill proposes the modification, extension or abrogation of 225 pieces of legislation. (…) The institutional burden is shifted onto the shoulders of the High Council of Magistrates (CSM). That is why I am calling, once again, on you to contribute to the urgent resolution of the CSM quorum matter,” the Justice Min, Catalin Predoiu, stated, in the assembly. His reference to the stalled activity of CSM rekindled debate, as the Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR) senator Gyorgy Frunda, alongside some Social-Democratic Party (PSD) MPs, accused the ruling party of being behind procrastinations in the solving of this problem. Although the Social-Liberal Union’s collaboration protocol stipulates that Liberals and Social-Democrats should vote against all bills proposed by the Government, PSD and National Liberal Party (PNL) senators said they had, nonetheless, voted in favour of this bill. The Senate was the first Chamber notified, and the final decision will be made in the Chamber of Deputies.
