The European Parliament will run debates on the situation of justice in Romania in the next plenary session, in February, in the Strasbourg plenary. The decision has been taken on Thursday in the European Parliament at the Conference of Presidents, comprising the leaders of the political groups and the President of the Parliament.
The decision appears on the day of GRECO report’s publication, on preventing corruption regarding the members of the Parliament, judges and prosecutors.
“It is a clear signal that the attempts of PSD and ALDE to control and weaken the judicial are not unnoticed, and the fact that the European Parliament has decided to debate even in the second plenary session this year, the situation of justice in Romania shows a serious concern at the level of the European Union against the attempts to weaken the judicial system in Romania. (…) The rule of law in each member state is essential for the success of the functioning of the European Union as a whole. If institutions are weak in a member state, this represents a risk to citizens across the European Union, a security risk, first of all. The rule of law must be respected in all states.
Fighting corruption, strengthening institutions and the rule of law are some of the main gains that Romania has registered since the EU accession. Without the support of our partners, the European Commission, the EU member states, the United States of America, they would not have been possible. The European Union will always be on the side of honest citizens fighting politicians who are trying to weaken the judicial and act against people’s interests.
Legalizing theft in Romania is a risk to the security of the European citizens in the context in which our country participates in the free movement of persons, goods, services and capital within the European space. That is why the European Union does not allow any breach in the judicial system from any member country because that would become a major risk to the whole Union. You cannot turn into a mafia type of state of and remain an EU member, this is what the interest groups in PSD and ALDE need to understand!” says Siegfried Muresan, MEP, in a release.
