The Romanian Constitutional Court on Wednesday unanimously overruled the Liberals’ complaint on the vote in Parliament asking for the prosecution against PM Victor Ponta. So, the constitutional judges ruled that the vote through which the premier kept his parliamentary immunity was correct.

The National Liberal Party appealed the June 9 vote at the Constitutional Court, but the Court argued that the Chamber of Deputies’ regulations that the June vote procedure was based on are constitutional.

Liberals were hoping that the vote in the premier’s case should be resumed like the one in the case of Dan Sova.

PM Victor Ponta is indicted in Rovinari-Turceni file under the charge of forgery in deeds by private signature, complicity to money laundering and tax evasion, deeds that he would have committed during the time he was a lawyer. He is also charged with conflict of interest for appointing Dan Sova as minister in his cabinet, in his position as prime minister.
