Referendum Senate Inquiry Commission

Senate Deputy Speaker Petru Filip  announced that the Standing Bureau decided to include on the plenum agenda the setting up of an inquiry commission on the July 29 referendum for the president’s dismissal, where the Social Liberal Union will hold the majority of the whole membership majority.  He pointed out that the commission will look into prosecutors’ investigations in the referendum case file. The setting up of the commission was requested by 34 Social-Democrat senators and 12 National Liberal Party (PNL) senators. The substantiation note for the draft bill debated by the Monday’s session of the Senate Standing Bureau shows that there is a worrying number of citizen notifications on alleged abuses made by prosecutors after the referendum. According to the document signatories, citizens in a number of localities hold they had been harassed by prosecutors, taken out of the church and made to swear with their hands on The Bible.  The document signatories,  Senators Ilie Sarbu (Social-Democratic Party – PSD)  and Mario Oprea (PNL) mentioned that the commission does not aim to question prosecutors, but only verify citizen notifications and their authenticity, and to take into account likely illegal deeds committed by prosecutors. The leader of the Senate PDL Group, Cristian Radulescu, said that the Democrat-Liberals will vote against the Commission being set up, and if set up, they would not be part of its membership.
