Constitutional Court rejects, as inadmissible, USR’s challenge against judicial laws

On Wednesday, the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) rejected, as inadmissible, the Save Romania Union’s (USR) challenge against the three judicial laws, according to sources.

On Wednesday, the CCR’s order of the day included the discussion of three constitutionality challenges filed against the laws amending and supplementing law no.317/2004 on the Supreme Magistracy Council (CSM), law no.303/2004 on the statute of judges and prosecutors, and law no.304/2004 on the organisation of the judicial system.

The three challenges were filed by the USR House members, who were joined by National Liberal Party (PNL) and Popular Movement Party (PMP) House members, by representatives of ethnic minorities, and by non-affiliated lawmakers.

The PNL and the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ) had previously filed challenges against the three judicial laws, and the CCR had established that there are a series of unconstitutional articles of law in relation to the criticism levelled.
