Bucharest, Feb 22 /Agerpres/ - Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu stated on Wednesday that in the discussions with Tudorel Toader, who was proposed by the Social Democratic Party (PSD) - Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) governing coalition to take over the Justice Minister office, tackled these three topics: measures which must be implemented in order to lift the Co-operation and Verification Mechanism (CVM), transposing the decisions of the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) regarding the Criminal Codes in the legislation and the package of measures that must be adopted in relation to the situation in prisons.
"The discussion with Tudorel Toader, proposal, and if I will manage to get in time I will send these proposals to the Presidential Administration, was a discussion just like the one I had with the others I met with - I announced publicly that I had meetings with some of them - regarding what I want the Justice Minister to do. (...) Firstly, I discussed about what he needs to do in order to remove the CVM, he explained to me, and he will also explain it to you in detail. Moreover, (we discussed - e.n.) about what transposing the decisions of the CCR in the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code means, it's an area just as important, and the manner in which this will happen," Sorin Grindeanu claimed in a press conference at Parliament, when asked about what he discussed with Tudorel Toader on the background of his tenure at the Justice Ministry.
The PM added that another topic that was tackled with Tudorel Toader was related to the possibility of a pilot decision of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) existing regarding the situation in prisons and the package of measures that has to be adopted in order to avoid this pilot decision.
"And all these things in detail, certainly, the Minister will explain to you, if things will be alright," Grindeanu added.
The PM explained that the nomination of Tudorel Toader as proposal for the Justice Ministry resulted following some discussions that the two of them had, but also following consultations with colleagues in the PSD and the governing coalition.
"I thought that the experience, we all believed that the experience that the rector has in this area, an experience of almost 10 years at the Constitutional Court, member of the Venice Commission, also the rector of the [Al. I. Cuza] University [in Iasi], a personality who fulfilled everything we requested, in terms of criteria for choosing a head for the Justice Minister. Those were our conclusions, we presented them in the coalition and, certainly, in the National Executive Committee (CExN). He was voted unanimously," Grindeanu explained.
In his turn, Chairman of the PSD Liviu Dragnea emphasized the PM's statements about the profile of Tudorel Toader, underlining that he will not be requested to enroll in the PSD. AGERPRES (RO - author: Daniel Florea, editor: Florin Marin; EN - author: Rodica Ionita, editor: Razvan-Adrian Pandea)
