Predoiu to propose a bill regarding magistrates’ accountability

The Justice Minister announced, yesterday, he would propose, to the Government, a bill for the accountability of magistrates and the consolidation of the Judiciary Inspection Authority, inspired by the Spanish law, “starting from the fact that the High Council of Magistrates was involved in a cooperation program with Spanish experts, which resulted in a series of proposals”. Predoiu explained that, according to the bill, the High Council of Magistrates’ Judiciary Inspection Authority would become an autonomous body and the chief credit authority. Furthermore, prerogatives to take disciplinary action against judges and prosecutors will be vested in the Justice Minister, the president of the High Court of Cassation and Justice and the Prosecutor General of Romania. According to official sources, quoted by Mediafax, the president Basescu called, on Wednesday, on the Cabinet, to draft a bill to regulate the accountability of magistrates, and the said piece of legislation should be approved by the ruling coalition.
