The prosecutors within the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) have rejected on Thursday the National Anti-corruption Directorate’s complaints in the case of the resolutions through which two major DNA’s departments remain without chiefs. Their assignments to DNA are ending following the recently adopted GEO 7 that is banning assignments in the judiciary bodies.
The two chiefs whose mandates are forced to end are Madalina Scarlat-chief prosecutor of the judiciary criminal department and Danut Volintiru-chief prosecutor of the department for countering corruption.
The DNA leadership has warned the Government over the institution’s deadlock and asked the PM and the Justice Minister to repeal the controversial emergency ordinance, GEO 7.
DNA chief prosecutor Călin Nistor has announced on Thursday that he had asked PM Dancila and Justice Minister Tudorel Toader to repeal GEO 7.
“Banning assignments for the leadership positions will block the activity of the National Anti-corruption Directorate and will prevent it from exerting its legal duties, considering that the chief prosecutor of the departments will no longer be able to check the indictments and, thus, the authors of the criminal deeds will no longer be held responsible,” the DNA mentions.
