The High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) is to rule on Wednesday in the appeal filed by the National Integrity Agency (ANI) against the decision in favor of President Klaus Iohannis, in the latter’s incompatibility case.
The ANI representative asked on January 14 the judges to admit the appeal, arguing that the decision of the Constitutional Court on the incompatibility of local elected officials provides solid grounds for this legal move.
In turn, the lawyers of Klaus Iohannis requested the dismissal of the appeal as “obviously unfounded,” arguing that the decision of the Constitutional Court has not yet been drawn up, therefore its reasons are not yet known.
The file of Klaus Iohannis reached the high court after which, on September 25, 2013, the Court of Appeal of Alba Iulia cancelled ANI’s report finding he had been in a state of incompatibility.
In April 2013, ANI declared Klaus Iohannis as being in an incompatibility state, as he simultaneously held the office of Sibiu Mayor and representative in the General Meeting of Shareholders of SC Apa Canal SA and SC Piete SA.
