Justice Minister, Tudorel Toader, said on Monday he hasn’t been consulted regarding an emergency ordinance to amend the Criminal Codes. Toader said he was away from Bucharest in the past 4-5 days.

“I’ve returned yesterday evening and I will find out what is new at the Justice Ministry. Nobody has told me about such a debate. If I am requested, I will answer, but please agree I should not answer hypothetical questions,” the minister said, according to digi24.ro.

Referring to the extradition procedures for Elena Udrea (former tourism minister, now in Costa Rica – our note) and Sebastian Ghita (former MP, now in Serbia – our note), Toader said the ministry has met its obligations ‘in due time and completely’.

“The extradition procedure is the one provided by law 302. The extradition papers were also sent in the case of Sebastian Ghita. In Elena Udrea’s case the procedure is also completed. The request should come from the court, we send the request further on,” the Justice Minister said.
