The magistrates of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (Romania’s Supreme Court) on Wednesday admitted former senator Dan Sova’s request to notify the Constitutional Court over a constitutional exception on an article from the criminal code referring to the abuse of office. The ruling is final.

Dan Sova’s lawyer has asked the Supreme Court on February 10 to notify the CCR in the “Turceni-Rovinari” file over an article related to the abuse of office offense.

“The abuse of office committed by a public servant is incriminated more seriously than the one committed by a clerk. The state’s private wealth is more protected than a citizen’s private wealth,” the lawyer argued back then.

Dan Sova is charged with abetment in abuse of office, forgery in deeds under private signature, tax evasion in continued form and money laundering.

Former PM Victor Ponta is also indicted in the Turceni Rovinari case, for forgery in deeds under private signature, abetment in tax evasion and money laundering, deeds that he would have committed while he was lawyer.
