UDMR’s Korodi: It’s not healthy for the Gov’t to issue emergency ordinances on pardon and on amending the criminal codes
UDMR not want any emergency ordinance, or the assuming of responsibility on pardon and on amending the criminal codes, says the UDMR deputies’ leader, Attila Korodi. He said for RFI that UDMR wants transparent debates in Parliament.
Korodi says that a parliamentary debate on pardon and on amending the Criminal Codes is needed: “If one has so important issues and we have already expressed our views on the Criminal Code and Criminal Procedure Code, it is not healthy for the Government to issue emergency ordinances, regardless of the mandate given by the voters.”
The UDMR deputies’ leader states that “the parliament has on the table also the ordinance issued by Ciolos government on the Criminal Code and Criminal Procedure Code, which is also wrong because it changes so many issues by emergency ordinance. The debate would have been possible for both, and the Parliament should decide in a transparent manner, in parliamentary debates. In such a case the people no longer would have had this bitter taste when you know that something is happening, but you do not understand.”
Korodi says that “politically speaking, we believe that already, whether we speak about the Criminal Procedure Code, the Criminal Code or about pardon, they should all go for amendments or for enactment in Parliament.”
The MP said that UDMR does not want any emergency ordinance or any assuming of responsibility on pardon and on amending the Criminal Codes: “No, because we cannot control, through transparent debates in Parliament, the errors, skidding or bad approaches.”
