Justice Minister Tudorel Toader has announced Monday morning he has notified the Judicial Inspection, in order to conduct a ‘thorough’ assessment of the managerial activity carried out by the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) and the Prosecutor General’s Office. The findings will lead to decisions ‘proportionate to the erroneous functioning assessed’, the minister said.
“The two institutions have not been assessed since 2007 in regard to the managerial activity. I don’t believe it is quite right to have ten years without an evaluation,” Tudorel Toader said in a press conference, hotnews.ro informs.
“I assure you that the decisions will be proportionate to the erroneous functioning assessed,” he said, adding that it is time to clarify things at the DNA.
On the other hand, evz.ro informs that two other prosecutors intend to leave the DNA. Adrian Țârlea has filed a request to the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) by which he expressed the intention to return to the Bucharest Court, whereas Văcaru Doru Gabi has requested to be transferred to the Prosecutor’s Office upon the Giurgiu Court.
DNA prosecutors Doru Ţuluş, Mihaela Iorga and Nicolae Marin filed a complaint last week to the Judicial Inspectorate after receiving summons in the file opened following the recordings released in public with Codruţa Kovesi, as they were asked to carry out the polygraph test.
At the same time, the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) Chief Prosecutor Laura Codruţa Kovesi has requested the Prosecutor’s Section of the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) to remove magistrates Doru Ţuluş and Mihaela Iorga from office, a decision is expected on the July 4 meeting.
Chief Prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) Laura Codruţa Kovesi allegedly was recorded, according to a broadcast by Romania TV private broadcaster, during a meeting with the subordinated prosecutors, while telling prosecutor Jean Uncheşelu that she wants to ‘isolate’ the file with the (sold) houses and to target the prime minister./IBNA
