President Iohannis signs decree excluding former prosecutor Mircea Negulescu from magistracy

On Monday, President Klaus Iohannis signed the decree on the dismissal of Mircea Negulescu, currently suspended from office, as a prosecutor of the Prosecutor’s Office attached to the Campina Court, as a result of applying the disciplinary sanction consisting of the exclusion from magistracy.

“The Romanian President, Mister Klaus Iohannis, signed this Monday, April 22, the decree on the dismissal of Mister Mircea Negulescu, currently suspended from office, as a prosecutor of the Prosecutor’s Office attached to the Campina Court – as a result of applying the disciplinary sanction consisting of the exclusion from magistracy”, reads an announcement of the Presidential Administration.

On April 8, 2019, the magistrates of the High Court of Cassation and Justice decided to exclude prosecutor Mircea Negulescu from magistracy; the decision is final.

On September 28, 2018, the Department for Prosecutors of the Supreme Council of Magistracy (CSM) decided to suspend former head of DNA Ploiesti, Lucian Onea, and former prosecutor of this structure, Mircea Negulescu, from magistracy. Later, the decision was challenged to the High Court by Mircea Negulescu.

The two prosecutors are accused of compelling certain witnesses to make fake complaints and tables of voters from the Republic of Moldova, documents showing that the voters received money as “electoral bribe”. According to judiciary sources, there is a complaint made by the former MP Vlad Cosma against a citizen of Chisinau, Serghei Petrus. Vlad Cosma was allegedly threatened by Lucian Onea that a criminal case will be opened against his sister Andreea Cosma. Later, Vlad Cosma publicly stated that Serghei Petrus doesn’t exist.
