President Klaus Iohannis on Wednesday stated that reanalyzing justice laws cannot be postponed, while also underscoring the need for extensive debates in Parliament on this topic.
“In 2020, the citizens unequivocally expressed, by vote, their option for reforms and strengthening the principles of the rule of law. In this context, reanalyzing the justice laws can no longer be postponed. I trust that Romania will become predictable again, in the next period, in terms of the framework regulating the judicial activity in Romania, according to the standards of a European state. And for this to happen there is need of ample debates in Parliament, involving not only the representatives of the professions involved in the justice field but also the representatives of the academic environment and the human rights experts,” said the head of state, at the presentation of the activity report for last year of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ).
The head of state voiced hope that the “controversial” legislative interventions in recent years will be corrected.
“I hope that this dialogue will correct the controversial legislative interventions of recent years and that solutions will be adopted adjusted to the new legal and social realities. This process is also an opportunity to capitalize on the recommendations of the European bodies and to adjust the legislative solutions that were established to be unconstitutional to meet the jurisprudence of the constitutional court,” added the President, according to Agerpres.
