The Senate Speaker Calin Popescu Tariceanu decided to notify the Constitutional Court (CCR) on a legal constitutional conflict between the Romanian Gov’t and the Public Ministry, through the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA).
ALDE co-chairman asks the Constitutional Court to rule that the criminal prosecution bodies cannot investigate the opportunity to draft regulatory documents.
Calin Popescu Tariceanu told a press release that the emergency ordinance adopted by Grindeanu Cabinet last week is approaching a criminal policy topic of the Romanian state.
“Or, the criminal policy measures are the exclusive competence of the Parliament and of the Government, and other public authorities, including the judicial authority, can voice stances on this topic can and must be consulted, but cannot have the power to interfere, to have a discretionary intervention, including the criminal investigation over the Parliament and Executive structures,” reads the notification sent the Romanian Constitutional Court.
“The Senate Speaker considers that, proceeding with the investigation of the opportunity, the circumstances of the draft, the representatives of the Public Ministry have usurped some of the government’s responsibilities, which led t the current legal constitutional conflict,” the release also says.
