President Klaus Iohannis will meet on Wednesday at the Cotroceni Palace with a Venice Commission delegation.
According to the head of the state’s agenda, the meeting is scheduled to take place at 11:00 a.m.
“I will have a meeting tomorrow with the representatives of the Venice Commission, at their initiative, and we will most definitely discuss about the criminal codes,” the head of state on Tuesday said at the Cotroceni Palace.
Outgoing Justice Minister Tudorel Toader too will meet with the Venice Commission’s rapporteurs on the same day.
“Wednesday, April 24 – meeting with the group of rapporteurs of the European Commission for Democracy through Law (the Venice Commission) at the Ministry of Justice” – states the minister’s agenda published on the institution’s website.
At the same time, the special parliamentary commission on justice will have a meeting with representatives of the Venice Commission on talks on emergency ordinances to amend the laws of justice, according to the special committee’s chair Florin Iordache.
“The Venice Commission (…) will meet with us on Thursday at 11:00 am. Until then, the representatives of the Venice Commission will have meetings with the Justice Ministry, the associations, the CSM and so on. But the Venice Commission will come to talk about the laws of justice. As you know, the usual telltales, PNL and USR, went to Strasbourg and complained and under these circumstances the Venice Commission came to see whether the Ordinances 90, 92, 7, through the modifications made, have violated the laws of justice,” Iordache said on Tuesday after the meeting of the Special Committee that approved the modifications to be brought to the Criminal Procedure Code, after several initial provisions were removed for being declared unconstitutional.
On Wednesday, the committee’s report will be debated by the plenary sitting of the Deputies’ Chamber, a decision-making forum in this case.
