Cristi Danilet: The court acknowledged that the revoking procedure was unconstitutional

Judge Cristi Danilet, who returned to the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) after the Bucharest Court of Appeals decided to suspend the decision to revoke him from the position of member, yesterday said that the court acknowledged the unconstitutionality of the revoking procedure and his return was just “a formality.”
Asked if he believes that the decisions of the Bucharest Court of Appeals which cancels the decision of the Plenum made on February 26 on revoking him from the position of CSM member will be challenged and its execution will be suspended until a final verdict, Danilet said that the court verdict will not be appealed. “I informally discussed with the colleagues. It is no use attacking, challenging with appeal. As I said, it was only a formality our return to the Council, after the Constitutional Court pronounced itself,” the judge mentioned.
Asked about the more than 1,100 magistrates that decided to revoke him from office, Danilet said that it is a signal he received from his colleagues and he will have to strengthen the link with them. “Of course, I still want to represent them. I want to tell you that precisely today we made extremely, extremely important decisions in the Council,” Danilet stated.
Cristi Danilet and Alina Ghica resumed their activity after last week the Bucharest Court of Appeals and, respectively, the Galati Court of Appeals decided to suspend the decisions made by the Plenum of the Superior Council of Magistracy that decided their revocation from the positions of members of CSM.
On February 26, Cristi Vasilica Danilet, judge at the Cluj Tribunal, and Alina Ghica, judge at the Bucharest Court of Appeals were revoked from CSM following the votes cast with this regard by the general assemblies of judges. The two magistrates appealed against the revocation decisions at the Bucharest Court of Appeals, demanding the cancellation of the decisions of revocation from CSM. Ghica also challenged the revocation decision at ICCJ.
Also yesterday, the plenum of the CSM took act of the resignation of Daniel Morar from magistracy and will send the decision to President Traian Basescu in view of issuing the decree that will release him from office. The former interim general prosecutor and the former chief of DNA, Daniel Morar was appointed by President Traian Basescu as judge at the Constitutional Court. His 9-year mandate at the CC will begin on June 9.
On March 25, Daniel Morar was appointed by President Traian Basescu as judge at the Constitutional Court, for a 9-year mandate, starting June 9.
The plenum of CSM also decided to propose to the president the release from function of Judge Carmen Mladen, sentenced to 3 years and 6 months of prison – suspended – for blackmail. It also took act of the retirement request submitted by prosecutor Carmen Galca, deputy chief of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA).
