The Bloc of Communists and Socialists Submitted a Motion of No Confidence Against the Minister of Justice Accusing Him of “political subordination of justice”
The Bloc of Communists and Socialists submitted a motion against the activity of the Ministry of Justice during the sitting of the Parliament on Thursday, October 14th. Socialist deputy Vasile Bolea mentioned that the motion was called – “undermining the principles of the rule of law and undermining justice.”
The authors of the motion accuse Minister Sergiu Litvinenco of “political subordination of justice.”
“We are making a simple motion on the policies of the Ministry of Justice. On the activity of the Ministry of Justice. On 6 August, Parliament approved and voted on the Government’s work program. The government has taken up the effective fight against corruption and in 100 days, the Government, the Action and Solidarity Party, and the Ministry of Justice subjugated the rule of law. (….) You put pressure and make a show of the prosecutor general’s arrest. (….) The Ministry of Justice defied the recommendations of the authorities. We request the freedom of the Prosecutor’s Office and the Superior Council of Magistracy and the assurance of the independence of these institutions,” said the deputy of the Bloc of Communists and Socialists, Vasile Bolea.
In a message posted on Facebook, Minister Litvinenco mentions that he will follow up on the motion and will answer all questions. “The path to fair justice and a real fight against corruption will not be easy. Many have been, are, and will be against them,” writes Litvinenco.
“I see that socialists and communists have filed a simple motion against me in Parliament. Because it is a constitutional instrument, I will enforce it as required by law. Basically – I will see what is imputed to me and I will respond punctually to everything. But above all, as I said before, the path to fair justice and a real fight against corruption will not be easy. Many have been, are, and will be against them. Because they have what to lose. But I don’t care what politicians ousted from government lose because they’ve been destroying their country for decades. I am interested in what most of the citizens of this country want. Namely, a strong state, with functional institutions, where those who steal from people should be brought to justice. And I will do exactly what the citizens want,” pointed out Minister of Justice, Sergiu Litvinenco.
According to Parliament’s Rules of Procedure, the simple motion can be initiated by at least 15 deputies and is debated in Parliament’s plenary sitting within 14 working days from the submission.
