JusMin Pruna at inauguration of PG Lazar: Public Prosecution Service needs serious reform

Justice Minister Raluca Pruna told the inauguration ceremony of Romania’s new Prosecutor General Augustin Lazar that the Public Prosecution Service needs serious reform, adding that Lazar’s term in office will not be an easy one from that point of view.

“In my conversation with Mr Prosecutor Augustin Lazar, he said he has the managerial vision, determination and authority needed for such a position, but I believe that beyond this conversation, the entire career of Mr Prosecutor General Lazar recommends him for the office at a time that is not at all easy for the Public Prosecution Service. I believe the Public Prosecution Service finds itself at a time when it needs serious reform and I also believe that Mr Prosecutor General Lazar will not have an easy term in office from that point of view,” said Pruna, according to Agerpres.

Also attending the inauguration ceremony were office managers of the General Prosecution Office, officials of the Supreme Council of Magistrates (CSM), as well as Chief Prosecutor with the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA) Laura Codruta Kovesi and Chief Prosecutor with the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism Daniel Horodniceanu.
