JusMinToader says PG Lazar consulted him before appointing Jurma interim chief prosecutor of the DNA

Justice Minister Tudorel Toader said Monday that Attorney General Augustin Lazar consulted him before appointing Anca Jurma as acting chief prosecutor of the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA).

Journalists asked Toader on Monday as he was entering the headquarters of the Justice Ministry for a take on Jurma’s recent meeting with US ambassador in Bucharest Hans Klemm.

“I think you should ask hierarchically. To tell you the truth, in a discussion with the attorney general before recommending Mrs Anca Jurma, whom I know, for the acting position he first consulted with me, and I said half-jokingly: ‘You should know I was on the doctoral board of Anca Jurma, too.’ My opinion – you should ask in hierarchical order. She’s got a chief, an attorney general, who can answer you this question,” Toader said.

Asked if Jurma would be a good candidate for DNA chief prosecutor, Toader said: “Any prosecutor who fulfills the legal requirements, any prosecutor who wishes to take up this huge responsibility in a decent way can apply for it. First, let’s see if she enters the completion and secondly I cannot say anything before it happens.”
