The Prosecutors’ Section of the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) has decided on Thursday to notify the Judicial Inspectorate in regard to the compliance with legal and regulatory provisions in the registration and settlement of the file on the complaint against Frans Timmermans, the First Vice-president of the European Commission.
The decision was made after the agenda had been supplemented.
In the CSM sitting, prosecutor Cristian Ban said that there are problems with the illegality of registering the file and the illegality of the solution. The prosecutor asked for checks on meeting the legal provisions.
