President Iohannis refers to CCR the amendments to the statute of MPs

President Klaus Iohannis has referred to the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) the amendments to the statute of Deputies and Senators, arguing that the article granting the legal right to mediate the relationship between citizens and potential investors with the public and local administration in fact violates the Constitution.

“By omitting the possibility whereby a Deputy or Senator accepts the promise of money and other benefits for mediating the relationship between citizens and local and central authorities is thus implicitly decriminalized this way of committing the offence of influence peddling, under the criminal law,” the Presidency argues.
