The National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) chief Laura Codruta Kovesi has sent a reply to the address received from the inquiry parliamentary committee on the 2009 presidential elections, saying she will not turn up to the hearings scheduled on June 14. She added that the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) plenum has decided that “the prosecutors cannot be cited and forced to attend parliamentary committees as witnesses, as – according to constitutional norms – they are part of the judicial system.
Laura Codruta Kovesi, former Prosecutor General in 2009, was invited for next Wednesday to hearings by the inquiry parliamentary committee on the 2009 presidential elections.
“We’ll hear George Maior, the former SRI director and Vergil Voineagu, the former head of the Statistics Institute on Monday,” committee chairman Mihai Fifor said, adding that Robert Cazanciuc, Gheorghe Netoiu, Catalina Voicu and Dumitru Iliescu will come for hearings on Tuesday.
Laura Codruta Kovesi and former PM Emil Boc were expected to be heard on Wednesday.
The inquiry committee on the 20019 elections will also ask the Chamber and Senate speakers to extend the committee’s activity by 60 days, arguing that the members are facing an extremely high amount of information and would need more time to review it.
