 •  English

Speaker of the Deputies' Chamber and Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (PSD) Liviu Dragnea stated on Friday that he told US Ambassador in Bucharest Hans Klemm during the discussions they carried out that the Justice laws will be voted in Parliament.

"I had a talk, a meeting, Mr Ambassador had requested this meeting for almost two weeks, now I could find room in the schedule and I welcomed him. We have talked about an event that is extremely important for Romania — the 'Trade Wins' economic forum, which I've talked about with him and a representative of some US companies in March. It was the first visit to Romania of a significant number of companies. There were some talks then about a roadmap that was handed to Sorin Grindeanu. (...) We're in the home stretch, we're on schedule with organising this event. I also talked about the famous intentions of amending the Justice laws," Dragnea said in Bistrita.

He mentioned he told the US Ambassador that the Justice laws will be debated in Parliament, adding he endorses the proposals of Minister Tudorel Toader.

"I have told Mr Ambassador what I also said publicly (...) that the laws are to be voted in Parliament and we will look carefully at all arguments that have and will come out (...) and the debate will begin, which will end in Parliament and only there, with these bills, I also assured him that these laws won't affect the good course of Justice. (...) I have seen the Magistrates Association's and other specialists' stand who are endorsing, to a large extent these proposals of Minister Toader which I also support. After seeing the proposals I am convinced that they will change the system for the better (...) and they will include magistrates' accountability and increase the independence of judges and our feeling that they can judge without being influenced by anyone," Dragnea stated.
