Prime Minister Victor Ponta says politicians should solve their political problems without dragging justice in, as he points to the decision of the Supreme Court of Justice and Cassation that rejected as ungrounded a complaint from the Cluj chapter of the opposition National Liberal Party (PNL) against a decision of the General Prosecution Service not to start a criminal investigation on him.
“I am happy about the decision of the Supreme Court of Justice and Cassation – they purely and simply showed once again that politicians have to solve their political problems without dragging justice in! I could obviously in my turn file a complaint for slander but I have more important things to do than punish a certain PNL Cluj leader (whom I do not know personally, but who, my acquaintances from Cluj say is a clown compared to which Vanghelie is a refined intellectual),” Ponta said Thursday in a Facebook post.
He added that after this court decision, “there are two lessons left for the PNL (if they want to learn)”. “Stop using justice to make up for your own political impotence! Sooner or later this is a losing strategy. Suburban attacks at the prosecutors who issued their verdict (today confirmed by judges) prove once again that the PNL loves justice only when it fits it to do so. I do not think there is anybody now doubting the PNL hypocrisy and duplicity!” added Ponta.
The Supreme Court of Justice and Cassation has rejected as ungrounded a complaint filed by the Cluj chapter of PNL against the General Prosecution Service’s decision not to start a criminal investigation on Prime Minister Victor Ponta for alleged abuse of office for having disregarded the legal deadline for holding by-elections. The decision is final.
