Justice Minister Tudorel Toader stated on Thursday for Mediafax that he sent the draft law amending the Criminal Codes to the Prosecutor General (PG), National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA), Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) and to the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), mentioning that he is waiting for suggestions until Thursday.
“I sent the draft law amending the Criminal Code to the Prosecutor General, National Anticorruption Directorate, Superior Council of Magistracy and to the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism. I set the deadline on Thursday in order for them to bring proposals and suggestions. As the initiator, I want to comply with the Constitutional Court’s decisions” stated JusMin Tudorel Toader for MEDIAFAX.
Justice Minister announced on Wednesday that he prepared the draft law on the Criminal Code and Criminal Procedure Code, and it will be subject to the parliamentary proceedings.
“I prepared the draft law amending the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code in order to harmonize them with the Constitutional Court’s decisions. The amendments to the two Codes are strictly related to harmonizing the Codes with the Constitutional Court’s decisions, as I stated before, nothing more, nothing less. We made the amendments in order to harmonize them both simply with the decisions of acceptance and with the interpretative ones” stated JusMin in a press conference.
Tudorel Toader mentioned that there will be no threshold for the abuse of office.
“I will release the draft law without a threshold, since the operative part of the CCR decision doesn’t mention any threshold. The draft law will be subject to the Government’s approval, then I will send it to the public debate, it will not be an ordinance. It will pass through both of the Chambers, and when it will face Mr. Iordache, he can intervene within his competences, having the legislator’s experience”, Toader added.
JusMin also stated that other draft laws will also be prepared in order to harmonize the laws with the CCR decisions.
