President Klaus Iohannis welcomes decision of Romanian Constitutional Court, which on M Monday declared as unconstitutional the current Criminal Codes. Head of State criticizes the PSD-ALDE ruling coalition for the legislative changes and asks the Parliament to reject all amendments to the criminal codes.

Decision of the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) regarding Criminal Codes "sanctions, for the second time, the legislative demarche of the PSD [Social Democratic Party] - ALDE [Alliance of Liberals and Democrats] coalition" and modifications brought to criminal legislation are "harmful and contrary" to the Constitution, for which reason Parliament must reject them in their entirety, said President of Romania, according to a Presidential Administration release.

Klaus Iohannis maintains that modifications of the Criminal Codes were aimed at protecting criminals, weakening the rule of law and encouraging the criminal phenomenon. 

"Adopted by Parliament in only a few weeks, without any substantiation or consultation with the judiciary system and the civil society, the modifications on the criminal legislation were aimed at only one thing: protecting the criminals to the detriment of harmed persons, drawing up a whole set of procedures meant to weaken the state and encourage and criminal phenomenon. In this context, in which the two laws were successively invalidated by the Constitutional Court, I am asking the PSD-ALDE coalition to abandon this alleged reform in the criminal area. I am also asking Parliament to reject the modifications to the criminal legislation in their entirety and review the toxic changes already operated in the justice laws, which have proved true attacks to citizen's safety," Iohannis says.

President Iohannis draws attention of the PSD-ALDE parliamentary majority that respecting vote of the citizens given in 26 May referendum is compulsory and that in this respect it is imperative to transpose as soon as possible into the legislation provisions of the National Political Agreement for consolidation of Romania's European path.
