Justice Minister Tudorel Toader has stated on Monday that he expects from the candidates running for the position of chief prosecutor of the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) a managerial plan to comprise the Directorate’s current state, the measures to improve the activity, as well as a graphic on how to enforce these measures.
He said he expects as many candidates as possible will join the race for the DNA’s top position.
“A managerial programme is mandatory and it has to contain the x-ray of the DNA’s authority, to comprise the measures and the graphic to accomplish those measures. You cannot just draft a descriptive matter of what DNA is and how well has it worked,” the minister argued.
Toader further said that it was precisely those things that were missing to the four candidates who had been interviewed for this position.
None of the candidates for the office of Chief Prosecutor with the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) has been considered good enough by Justice Minister, Tudorel Toader, and the procedure is to be resumed.
“During the selection process the conclusion was that none of the candidates meets the requests in order to be assigned as Chief Prosecutor with the DNA. During the managing programme or the interview, none of the candidates has presented sufficient fundamental elements based on an analysis of the current situation which should allow, consequently, an objective and transparent process of assessing the managing performances,” a Justice Ministry release said on Friday.

300 magistrates investigated
After one of the former candidates running for the DNA top position, Marius Iacob, had said that at present about 300 files investigating magistrates are pending at the National Anti-corruption Directorate, Justice Minister Toader considers that the existence of these 300 files would justify the opposition against setting up a special section to investigate magistrates.
