Daniel Horodniceanu, former chief prosecutor of the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) has challenged on Monday the procedure of appointing the Prosecutor General by the Justice Minister to the Iasi Court of Appeals.
Horodniceanu ran for the position, but Justice Minister Tudorel Toader turned down all candidacies.
The Justice Minister has resumed the second selection procedure for the position of Prosecutor General, with the new interviews to be held on May 6-7 and the results expected to be announced on May 8.
The term of the current Prosecutor General expires on April 27, with Augustin Lazar to get retired. President Klaus Iohannis has already signed the retiring decree.
