The Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) decided on Monday that the Senate Speaker Calin Popescu-Tariceanu violated the independence of the judiciary by the statements and the letter requesting the dismissal of Livia Stanciu, president of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ – Supreme Court) and of DNA head Laura Codru?a Kovesi.

CSM has endorsed on Monday the Judicial Inspection report, which concluded that the allegations and requests of the Senate Speaker were likely to prejudice the independence of the judiciary.

Five senators, including Senate Speaker Tariceanu requested by letter, President Klaus Iohannis in May to remove by dismissal or resignation, Livia Stanciu, the president of the High Court of Cassation and Justice and the DNA head Laura Codru?a Kovesi for “violation of fundamental rights and freedoms” in the case of Mariana Rarinca.

Subsequently, CSM announced that it had notified the Judicial Inspection in connection with the request of the President of the Senate and the public debates regarding possible violations of judicial independence.
