The National Liberal Party (PNL) has officially assumed the criminal complaint filed by Chairman Ludovic Orban last week against Prime Minister Viorica Dancila. The PNL Executive Bureau voted on Tuesday in favour of this decision – 23 votes for, 3 against and 3 abstentions, realitatea.net reports.
According to the source, Iulian Dumitrescu and Tinel Gheorghe voted against, whereas Gigel Stirbu and Victor Dobre abstained.
“PNL supports the steps made by Ludovic Orban to notify a possible violation of the law by the Prime Minister and stands by the demarche. Any citizen of this country, having suspicions that the law is violated, is bound to inform the state institutions. We acted in such way during the election campaigns about the suspicions of ballot manipulation and some of the investigations were conducted all the way. On the other hand, the current governance is behaving undemocratically in relation with the citizens, because it does not accept any other point of view, not because there are suspicions of laws violation. PNL sides with democracy and democracy is defended by law,” PNL’s Raluca Turcan said after the party Executive Bureau.
Ludovic Orban filed a criminal complaint against PM Viorica Dancila to the Prosecutor General’s Office last Thursday. The complaint was filed over the Gov’t memorandum on the relocation of the Romanian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The Liberal leader accuses PM Dancila of high treason, of presenting information in bad faith to the Romanian President, of usurpation and disclosing state secret information.
Orban asks prosecutors to probe into all details related to the adoption of the memorandum on moving the Embassy to Jerusalem. According to the complaint, the memorandum adopted by the Government has brought serious prejudice to the country.
