Magistrates’ responsibility law is constitutional

The law of magistrates’ responsibility is constitutional, according to a decision made yesterday, in unanimity, by the judges of the Constitutional Court. The Senate passed with 74 votes to 30, and six abstentions, the draft law that expands the area of discipline infringements in the case of judges and prosecutors, and stipulates the creation of the Judiciary Inspection as structure with legal personality within CSM. The draft law had been rejected by the Chamber of Deputies. The draft law expands the area of discipline infringements in the case of magistrates, also by instating the disciplinary sanction of suspending the culprit for up to six months. The members of the Superior Council of Magistracy declared themselves disappointed with the Constitutional Court’s verdict, but did not want to elaborate at least until the Court justifies the decision and the law is published by the Official Gazette.
