CCR: 31 provisions of the bill amending the Criminal Code are not constitutional, including the new definitions for abuse of office and influence peddling

The Constitutional Court has ruled on Thursday that 31 provisions of the draft law amending the Criminal Code are not constitutional, including the new definitions of the abuse of office and influence peddling, as well as certain provisions related to the first-degree murder and perjury.

CCR has related three referrals against the amended criminal code submitted by the Supreme Court, by president Iohannis and by 110 deputies from the Opposition (PNL, PMP, USR and some independents), reads a press release issued by the Constitutional Court.

Therefore, the constitutional judges have admitted part of the submitted objections and found out that 31 provisions of the Criminal Code are not constitutional.

Subsequently, the draft law will get back in Parliament so that the MPs should revise the unconstitutional articles and reconcile them with the CCR’s ruling.
