JusMin Toader submits to President Iohannis proposal to appoint Banila chief prosecutor of DIICOT

Justice Minister Tudorel Toader announced on Monday that he had sent to President Klaus Iohannis the nomination of Felix Banila as chief prosecutor of the Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT).

“Today, I have sent to the President of Romania a proposal to appoint Mr Oliver – Felix Banila as chief prosecutor of DIICOT!” Toader said in a Facebook post.

Last week, the Department for Prosecutors of the Superior Council of Magistracy issued the positive opinion for the proposal made by the Justice Minister to appoint Prosecutor Felix Banila as the head of Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT).

Felix Banila, who is 46 years old, is a prosecutor of the Prosecutor’s Office attached to the Bacau Court. From 2010 to 2017, he was the Chief-Prosecutor of the Prosecutor’s Office attached to the Bacau Court. In 2016, Banila applied for a position in CSM (the Superior Council of Magistracy), but he failed.

According to the law, the Chief-Prosecutor of DIICOT is appointed by the Romanian President, at the proposal of the Justice Minister, with the positive opinion of CSM. The appointment is for three years, with the possibility to be reinvested only once.

Daniel Horodniceanu’s mandate at the DIICOT leadership expired on May 19, but he was extended for six months, according to the procedure.
