Romanian Magistrates To Appeal Govt Decree in Court

Southeast Europe | February 1, 2017, Wednesday // 18:03|  views


Romania’s Supreme Council of Magistracy will appeal in court the decree of the government which grants amnesty for several crimes related to abuse of office.

President Klaus Iohannis who will also participate in the meeting of the magistrate council stated that, in a country where there is rule of law, there cannot be such actions as undertaken by the Romanian government.

At the same time, the centrist opposition announced that they will submit a vote of no confidence in the government. The leader of the National Liberal Party announced that the necessary votes have already been collected.

The vote will probably take place next week. It is expected, however, that the government of Sorin Grindeanu will survive since it has a large enough majority in Parliament.
