President Klaus Iohannis stated on Thursday that it is early to discuss about a head at the European Prosecutor’s Office, pointing out the Romania hardly signed a few days ago the letter of intent in respect to being part of this project.
“It’s pretty early to discuss these things. It’s common here, for us, for a concept that barely took off, to be already analysts that foresee the end of the process. No, Romania just signed two or three days ago the letter of intent to be part of this European Prosecutor’s Office project, thus it’s a long way until a strengthened cooperation is achieved, as I called it, in order to proceed to the next phase. Therefore, it’s much too early to talk about such thing,” Iohannis stated, when asked regarding the scenarios according to which chief-prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) Laura Codruta Kovesi could be proposed to take over the lead of the European Prosecutor’s Office.
