Justice minister Tudorel Toader has stated on Monday that the prosecutors with the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) had taken “an instant” decision, referring to the negative opinion given on his call to dismiss DNA chief prosecutor Laura Codruta Kovesi, adding that now it’s hard for them to motivate their decision.
“The motivation will go to the Presidency. Prosecutors have taken an instant decision, quickly in ten minutes. Actually, I think there have been less than 10 minutes, for I was there. I maintain my stance. Now, you can realize, it’s hard for them (CSM) to motivate their decision,” Toader told Antena 3 private broadcaster.
At the same time, the Justice minister reiterated the accusations against Kovesi.
“The EU is addressing Poland urging it to observe the rule of law, to observe the rulings of the Constitutional Court. So, it’s serious, without any doubt, if the Constitutional Court’s decisions are not observed in a country. To the same extent, referring to Romania, I think it’s hard to explain the fact that a dignitary is breaking the Constitution three times in a year, that she generates three constitutional legal conflicts, so you make such an assessment and after that you congratulate the author of these breaches,” said Toader.
The prosecutors’ section within CSM gave a negative opinion for Kovesi’s recall on February 27.
