DOC/The Venice Commission Is Following the Situation in Moldova Closely
17 May 2020 | 11:58

The Constitutional Court notified the Venice Commission and other European institutions about the pressure to deliver the desired verdict, in favor of a Russian loan. One week after the court’s notification, the President of the Venice Commission, Gianni Buquicchio, issued a letter claiming that the Venice Commission is following the situation in Moldova closely. 

The President of the Venice Commission, Gianni Buquicchio, answered a letter issued by the newly elected President of the Constitutional Court, Domnica Manole. He stated that the Constitutional courts are essential in defending the constitution from other state powers, even if that means displeasing these very powers.

Buquicchio also stated that all state institutions and officeholders have to respect their own prerogatives, obligations, and competences and acknowledge and respect those of the other institutions. 

Buquicchio concluded that if the state institutions and the officeholders don’t exercise appropriate institutional restraint, displaying respect for each other, then the functioning of the state institutions is compromised and the democratic, civil, and economic progress of the society is jeopardized. He assured the magistrates from the Constitutional Court that he is following the situation in Moldova closely. 

In April the Constitutional Court overturned the Russian law agreement. Several days later, the plenum of the Constitutional Court notified the Prosecutor’s Office about the alleged intimidation against some judges of the court. Back then, Manole claimed that the court reserves the right to address the international institutions. 

On May 6, the magistrates from the Constitutional Court notified the Venice Commission, the European Parliament, the Council of Europe, and the embassies accredited in Moldova about the recent attacks on the Constitutional Court by some political actors.
