DNA Deputy Chief Prosecutor Marius Iacob resigns

Marius Iacob has stated for MEDIAFAX that he has resigned from the office of Deputy Chief Prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA). The decision comes after the Supreme Court admitted a disciplinary action taken by the Judicial Inspection and decided that the prosecutor should receive a warning.

Marius Iacob pointed out he will continue to work as a prosecutor within the National Anticorruption Directorate.

The DNA Deputy Chief Prosecutor’s decision to resign comes the day after Supreme Court magistrates decided that Marius Iacob committed a disciplinary offence in connection with the Directorate’s representation in the Mihaiela Iorga vs DNA trial, trial brought by the former after she was dismissed from the DNA. Iacob received a warning.

The warning concerned disciplinary offences committed in connection with the Directorate’s representation in the Mihaiela Iorga vs DNA trial, trial brought by the former after she was dismissed from the DNA.

“The Judicial Inspection has taken disciplinary action against Mr Marius Constantin Iacob, Deputy Chief Prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Directorate (“DNA”), for failure to observe the directives of the hierarchically-superior prosecutor, issued in writing and in line with the law, as well as for unjustifiably failing to observe the directives or decisions of an administrative character issued, in line with the law, by the leader of the prosecutor’s office, and for not observing other obligations of an administrative character stipulated by law or by regulations, disciplinary offences stipulated under Article 99, Letters g) and m), of Law no.303/2004,” the Judicial Inspection pointed out.

Likewise, the inspectors took disciplinary action against DNA Chief of Service Prosecutor Carmen Simona Ricu, “for violation of the legal provisions on incompatibilities and interdictions concerning judges and prosecutors, failure to observe the directives of the hierarchically-superior prosecutors, issued in writing and in line with the law, and unjustified failure to observe the directives or decisions of an administrative character issued, in line with the law, by the leader of the prosecutor’s office, or other obligations of an administrative character stipulated by laws and regulations, disciplinary offences stipulated under Article 99, Letters b), g) and m), of Law no.303/2004,” the Judicial Inspection points out. The inspectors have said that the magistrate infringed upon several provisions, including the DNA’s regulations, “by taking part, in her capacity as representative of a natural person – claiming that she was delegated by the defendant (DNA Chief Prosecutor) through a document under private signature – and in violation of the regime of incompatibilities and interdictions concerning the office of magistrate, in the civil case whose object is the suspension of the execution of Order no.301/2017, after Mr Marius Constantin Iacob, Deputy Chief Prosecutor of the DNA, issued Notice no.2001/C/2017 on 16 August 2018.”
