The Senate Law Committee has suspended the sitting on Tuesday due to lack of quorum. Although not included on the agenda, the committee should have issued a report on the DNA request to start the prosecution of Calin Popescu Tariceanu, Senate Speaker and ALDE leader.

The next sitting could take place on Wednesday.

“There is no sophisticated explanation, things are rather simple. There are a lot of activities taking place in this period. The decision has been postponed following the request from some colleagues to read the file, there’s nothing unusual,” Robert Cazanciuc said on Tuesday, after the sitting was suspended.

He added there is no deadline for the Law Committee to provide the Senate with a request.

“These are deeds of 10-12 years ago. I believe there’s no point in speaking about one month or two months, as we are to decide on the prosecution for deeds occurred ten years ago. When you are responsible and have thousands of pages to read, to have a consequent behavior,” the Senator added.

The National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) requested the start of prosecution on Calin Popescu Tariceanu. Tariceanu is charged with collecting almost USD 800,000 from an Austrian company representative in order to conclude several additional documents to a trade contract, with the money being used during the election campaign.
