Kovesi extends Morar deputies’ terms in office by 6 months

Romanian General Prosecutor Laura Codruta Kovesi extended on Saturday the terms in office of the deputies of Daniel Morar, the general prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Office (DNA). According to luju.ro, quoted by Antena 3, Kovesi extended the terms of Carmen Galca, Laura Oprean and Doru Tulus. Thus, the DNA team remains unchanged, the extension set to last six months at most.For the time being it is not known whether Justice Minister Titus Corlatean is aware of the move. According to his prerogatives, the Justice Minister has the legal possibility of proposing candidates for those offices. In early February Kovesi extended Morar’s term in office by six months. According to the High Court of Justice’s Prosecutor’s Office, the extension was ordered on February 13, 2012, after the term held by prosecutor Daniel Marius Morar expired. By law, the Romanian General Prosecutor can extend the term in office of the head of DNA by six months several times until the Justice Minister appoints a new person that would run for that office. Romanian President Traian Basescu announced as early as last year that he will ask for such an extension. Daniel Morar held two terms in office but the law no longer allows a third. Extending his term in office is basically the only technical solution that Kovesi found.
