The Constitutional Court (CCR) yesterday rejected a complaint from the opposition against a law amending police agents’ statute, according to Mediafax. The complaint had been filed by 111 lawmakers of the Social-Democrat Party and the National Liberal Party after the law in question was passed by the Chamber of Deputies on May 31. The opposition challenged the law, saying that it violates the constitution and allows police layoffs, even illegally. Under the provisions, the prime minister has the right to take whatever measures he wishes against Interior Ministry personnel, Social-Democrat group leader Mircea Dusa said earlier this month. He explained that the police had a special civil servant statute which was changed so as to allow their dismissal by mere order of the interior minister, which is unconstitutional.
