The speakers of the two chambers of the Romanian Parliament, Liviu Dragnea and Calin Popescu Tariceanu have submitted a draft law to be debated in emergency procedure, asking for the declassification of the CSAT resolution no.17/2005 on countering corruption, fraud an money laundering.
The coalition leaders say in a press release posted on Chamber of Deputies website that the serious abuses in the past months and years have been confirmed by the secret protocols the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) signed with various judiciary institutions.
„The secret agreements concluded among these institutions are outside any legal standard and rule of law. These secret protocols prove one thing: that the fundamental rights that any democratic state is based on have been broken. Under these circumstances, a legislative agenda must be assumed to repair this state of affairs and to enable the return to the rule of law,” the Chamber speaker Dragnea and Senate speaker Tariceanu claim.
They say that any citizen will be able to see these documents „to find out the truth about abuses”.
The draft law also stipulates that people who consider themselves harmed by these classified documents will be able to address courts within six months since the law comes into force to ask for compensations for the prejudice they have suffered.
