New Romania’s Agent at the EU Court of Justice: 32 years old, failed exams, a person supported by Olguta Vasilescu

The government agent at the EU Court of Justice, Razvan Horatiu Radu, was replaced by the Government by a decision of Prime Minister Viorica Dancila with Costin-Radu Cantar (32 years old).

The latter graduated from the Law School in Craiova and practised there as a lawyer until 2013 when he became a competition inspector.

There is very little official information about Costin Cantar and they are showing just his counter-performances:

  • in 2016 he failed the exam for diplomacy – he failed even after the contestations to obtain the score needed in the written test
  • was refused for a doctoral scholarship at the University of Craiova – he had the weakest score

The new government agent at the EU Court of Justice is the son of Mircea Cantar, the editor of local “Cuvantul Libertatii” publication in Craiova, where the current Labour Minister, Lia Olguta Vasilescu, worked for many years.

The newspaper is close to PSD and has benefited from several contracts funded by local authorities from public money, according to G4media.ro.

The replaced person, Razvan-Horatiu Radu, attended the National Institute of Magistracy (2001-2003), and was appointed as a prosecutor. Since 2006, Razvan-Horatiu Radu held the position of Head of the European Integration and Phare Programs Service (later referred to as the European Affairs and International Relations Service) within the Superior Council of Magistracy, until he was appointed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Razvan-Horatiu Radu’s results

The former Government Agent said in a brief report of his work that he found “many times that there is a lot of internal resistance to the transposition and implementation of the European legislation”.

Among his victories at the EU Court of Justice, we remind:

  • he succeeded in cancelling at the European Court of Justice a decision of the European Commission requiring Romania to pay more than EUR 100 million as financial corrections
  • he obtained at the European Court of Justice better conditions for consumers in credit contracts, as well as a more flexible interpretation of the value added tax and the customs duty systems
  • he succeeded in ending by negotiations with the European Commission over 200 infringement cases that could lead to sanctions for Romania
  • he supported views that have become jurisprudence on the European arrest warrant
