The parliamentary committee of inquiry into the General Election 2009 cannot investigate a cause that is already on a court’s agenda, the President’s spokesperson Madalina Dobrovolschi said on Friday.
“An investigation by the General Prosecutor’s Office is underway right now, from this point of view it is clear that the Presidential Administration would have nothing to comment about. (…) A parliamentary inquiry cannot investigate a cause, an action or events that are already on the table of a courthouse,” said Dobrovolschi at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace.
She specified that no invitation has been addressed to President Klaus Iohannis to participate in a sitting of the parliamentary committee of inquiry.
“A parliamentary committee of inquiry could invite any person who works in the area of the Government or public bodies, but if it’s not about the holder of such office, the person aimed at could receive the invitation and decline participation in such an inquiry since such a mandatory situation only refers to the Government area,” explained the President Iohannis’s spokeswoman.
