The Superior Council of Magistrates (CSM) on Thursday announced it had a protocol concluded with the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) back in 2012, which it was denunciated by mutual agreement of the parties in March 2017.
“The CSM concluded in 2012 an institutional protocol with the SRI. Upon the request of the Council’s members, which was made immediately as they took knowledge about their existence, the Protocol was denunciated in March 2017, by mutual agreement of the parties, with a declassification procedure having been initiated in this case, based on the Law no. 182/2002,” reads a press release of the CSM on Thursday.
According to the above-mentioned source, in 2014, it was concluded, for an indefinite term, the protocol regarding the cooperation between the CSM and the national Cyberint Centre, in the field of computer systems security and communications, regarding the protection of institution’s computer network, within the National System of Protection project of IT&C infrastructures of a national interest against threats in the cyber space, carried out by SRI and other partner institutions via the European financing programme POSCEE. This protocol is not subject to a classified file regime.
Scandal in the CSM plenary meeting. Codrut Olaru: Supreme Magistracy Council, Judicial Inspection and ICCJ concluded protocols of cooperation with the SRI. UNJR President: I’m absolute shocked to find out that the ICCJ, the apex of the judicial branch, signed protocols of collaboration with an intelligence service. What such protocol might contain is beyond my imagination
