Justice independence has been seriously breached by the Government by adopting the Government Emergency Ordinance (GEO) for the modification of the criminal codes, President Klaus Iohannis said on Wednesday, who proposed to notify the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) in this case on institutional conflict.
"The only way that I don't accept is for us not to do anything. It is an offense brought to justice. You are in charge with justice independence, which has been seriously breached. My opinion is that we must take attitude not only on a declarative level (...), but also on an institutional level. I imagine that the first step is the CCR notification, because there is an institutional conflict between the justice system and the Government. I am proposing this thing to you, not imposing it on you," Iohannis said at the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) meeting.
