JusMin Toader: Justice Ministry had draft prepared to ask for Venice Commission’s opinion

Minister of Justice, Tudorel Toader, claimed that the Ministry of Justice had a draft prepared on the modification of the three justice laws and also a draft through which it intended to ask for the Venice Commission’s opinion, which document were presented before the special parliamentary committee on justice matters, but three parliamentary initiatives related to the modification of the justice laws were later promoted and adopted instead.

Tudorel Toader had his first reaction after the Venice Commission’s opinion was released.

“Just some simple specifications related to the drafting of the justice laws! The Ministry of Justice had a draft prepared on the modification of the three justice laws. At the same time, the Ministry of Justice also prepared an 18-page draft through which it intended to ask for the Venice Commission’s opinion. On October 25 2017, we presented the two documents before the special committee of the Parliament. Subsequently, there were promoted three parliamentary initiatives related to the modification of the justice laws, which were debated and then adopted,” said Toader, in a message on his Facebook page.
