07/12/2018

In a letter Ska, as Co-President of the Greens/EFA Group, urges Commission's Vice-President Frans Timmermanns to support Romania in ensuring the quality of the legislative process and compliance with fundamental norms after the Romanian Minister of Justice took initiative to dismiss the National Anti-Corruption Directorate chief prosecutor despite the negative opinion of the Superior Council of Magistracy.

The letter also expresses concerns regarding the current reform of the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code in Romania as the EU should play an active role in promoting an independent justice system, ensuring the respect of fundamental rights, and in improving the anti-corruption framework in Romania.
