Following the Venice Commission’s opinion critical of the criminal codes and the judicial laws, President Klaus Iohannis stated that the Justice Minister compromised his credibility for good, this being a good reason for him to resign.
“The Justice Minister has definitively compromised his credibility, a sound reason for him to resign. President Klaus Iohannis is asking the Romanian Parliament to take into account the opinions included in the Venice Commission’s report and to re-evaluate, with maximum celerity, the amendments brought to the judicial laws, but also to the Criminal and Criminal Procedure Codes, so that the negative impact on the judiciary and on the rule of law would cease,” reads the point of view issued by the Presidential Administration.
