Nothing prevents the Government to amend the Criminal Codes by emergency ordinance, in the coming days, as long as the Parliament is in extraordinary session, Vice-chairman of the Chamber of Deputies, Florin Iordache, said on Friday.
“The Government can do anything,” he added.
The Criminal Procedure Code and the Criminal Code were adopted by Parliament in the past month and then challenged to the Constitutional Court, for this reason the amendments supported by PSD and ALDE will come into force with delay, ziare.com informs.
The situation will be different if the Viorica Dancila cabinet would promote the codes by emergency ordinance, the amendments would come into force once they are published by the ‘Official Journal’.
Asked if he is aware an emergency ordinance is under scrutiny at the Government, Florin Iordache said: “No, I know nothing about any ordinance, it was only a hypothetical opinion.”
