Law Committee Okays request to remand Ion Stan

The Law Committee of the Chamber of Deputies gave the go-ahead, with nine votes to one, to the Justice Ministry’s request to remand deputy Ion Stan, accused of misuse of authority.The chairman of the Committee, PDL deputy Daniel Buda said that this is unfortunately “a blind vote” in procedural terms, because he knows that the plenum will not meet for a decision in the case of Ion Stan. He urged the PSD group to meet and give a point of view in the Stan case. Deputy Ion Stan and his lawyer Doru Viorel Ursu attended yesterday morning, for less than half an hour, the proceedings of the Law Committee. The vice-president of the Law Committee, Florin Iordache (PSD) explained that the Permanent Bureau of the Chamber will meet Tuesday, but he could not say when the PSD group and the plenum will discuss the issue.The co-president of USL, PM Victor Ponta said Monday that he trusts the deputies of the Law Committee in the Stan case and he may not give an opinion on criminal probes, because “only President Traian Basescu has criminal files” and voices opinions on such matters.The decision of the Law Committee in the Ion Stan case was postponed last week, at the request of the representatives of the majority, which demanded additional evidence. The Ministry of Justice yesterday sent the speaker of the Chamber of Deputies the DNA request to be allowed to remand PSD deputy Ion Stan, accused of two crimes of misuse of authority.
