ICCJ President Livia Stanciu, on Ponta case: What happened in Parliament proves law isn’t equal for all

High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) President Livia Stanciu on Wednesday said that what happened at the Deputies’ Chamber at the voting on the request for the approval to open a criminal investigation in the case of Prime Minister Victor Ponta proves that the law isn’t equal for all.

Upon arriving at the Superior Council of Magistrates (CSM) headquarters, asked to comment on President Klaus Iohannis’ statement who labelled as “a sad day for democracy” the voting in the Deputies’ Chamber on Tuesday, she said: “What happened in Parliament, from my point of view, proves that the law isn’t equal for all.”

President Klaus Iohannis on Tuesday referring to Parliament’s voting in the case of Victor Ponta said that it is a “sad” day for democracy, showing that “destroying institutions and principles to save the career of one person is unacceptable.”

The Deputies’ Chamber in a plenary sitting on Tuesday approved the decision to reject the opening of a criminal investigation procedure against Prime Minister Victor Ponta by 231 votes to 120.
