The judges’ section of the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) has cancelled the disciplinary action against Cristina Tarcea, the chief of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ – Supreme Court), because the complainant who filed the referral to the Judicial Inspectorate did not have the procedural quality to do so.
The action is thus null, ziare.com reports. The decision was made by majority of votes.
ICCJ chief Cristina Tarcea had been charged by the Judicial Inspectorate of ‘unjustified refusal to carry out a duty of service and for not observing the dispositions on the random distribution of files.’
The action referred to the setting up of the 5-judge panels and of the 2-judge panels with the ICCJ.
According to the memorandum, the exception raised by Cristina Tarcea has been upheld regarding the “lack of procedural quality of the complainant.”
The complaint in this case was filed by Romanian Community Coalition in the US, led by former priest Chris Terhes, elected MEP on the PSD lists.
