EC Vice-President Jyrki Katainen comments on the GEO on 5-judge panels: ‘Unbelievable news!! Romanian people deserve rule of law!’

Vice-President of the European Commission Jyrki Katainen, has commented on Twitter the announcement made by the Romanian Justice Minister that an emergency ordinance on the five-judge panels is to be adopted, saying that it is an unbelievable news and that Romanians deserve a rule of law.

Justice Minister Tudorel Toader has announced on Sunday evening that his ministry has prepared an emergency ordinance to review the cases in court of all those people that had been sentenced by “illegally constituted judge panels”.
The GEO will practically invalidate all rulings pronounced by the High Court’s five-judge panels in the past 5 years, including in high-sounding corruption cases involving top politicians and businessmen, including in PSD chair’s file, Liviu Dragnea.
