Rudolph Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer, has sent a letter to President Klaus Iohannis, Prime Minister Viorica Dancila and the two Parliament Speakers regarding the protocols signed by the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI).
The letter mentions “the continuing damage to the rule of law in Romania” and the “DNA excesses”, stiri.tvr .ro reports.
Giuliani mentions at signatories of the protocols Laura Codruta Kovesi and the currently serving Ambassador to Washington DC, George Maior, calls for clarification of the protocols.
Asked about the letter, Justice Minister Tudorel Toader said he hasn’t read it, but “it does not say something new against what we’ve been saying so many times: that such protocols are unnatural,. We have a Constitution, we have laws, the Criminal Procedure Code. It is enough to interpret them and apply them correctly,” Toader said.
George Maior: He is the expression of lobby
In turn, Romanian Ambassador to Washington DC, George Maior, said that Rudolph Giuliani is a sparkling and combative character, the “expression of lobby initiated by some forces” which want to defend persons in Romania who have criminal problems.
“Mr. Giuliani is a sparkling anf combative character in the discussions in the US. I don’t know if he still is Mr. Trump’s lawyer, anyway, he is the expression of a lobby initiated by some forces interested in the defence of certain persons (in Romania – our note) who had problems with the judiciary,” George Maior said on Monday at the Annual Meeting of Romania Diplomacy.
