Joint efforts’s support in fighting corruption, among topics addressed by JusMin Toader, French ambassador Saint-Paul

The Romanian Justice Minister, Tudorel Toader and the French ambassador to Romania, François Saint-Paul (photo L) have addressed on Tuesday the support of the joint efforts in the fight against corruption and organised crime, says a release by the relevant ministry (MJ).

Tudorel Toader and the secretary of state Marieta Safta have approached, during a meeting with the French diplomat, at the ministry’s headquarters, several aspects referring to the bilateral cooperation in justice, especially as regards the accomplishment of the reference objectives monitored within the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM), the support of the joint efforts in fighting corruption and organised crime, as well as the importance and usefulness of the National Agency of Impounded Goods Administration, a newly fathered body for the recovery of damages resulted from crimes,” the release reads.

Talks have also targeted the importance of the central public administration’s reform, alongside of the justice as a public service, in the service of the citizen, also being emphasised the necessity to arrange and improve the national legislation, so it becomes more accessible to the public.

On this occasion, says the source, Tudorel Toader made known the intention to organise a conference on the Justice Ministry’s role in the architecture of the rule of law this October, to bring together in Bucharest the Justice ministries of the EU Member States, and be a moment of reflection from the European outlook upon the many possible approaches.
