The General Assembly of the Romanian anticorruption prosecutors has voted, today, that changes to the current laws of justice represent a form of pressure on the professional activity of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) prosecutors.
They rejected most of the proposals recently announced by Justice Minister Tudorel Toader, including the one on setting up a special directorate to investigate magistrates.
DNA prosecutors disagree with the transfer of the Judicial Inspection under the authority of the Ministry of Justice, and also with the establishment of a minimum age for candidates at the National Institute of Magistracy.
The General Meeting had been initially scheduled for August 31, but it was brought to a closer date following a call of the Romanian Attorney General Augustin Lazăr, who convened for today all the Regional Prosecutors for talks on the proposed changes to the justice laws.
