Commission for Emergencies suspends resignations of Supreme Court judges

The Commission for Emergencies has suspended for 30 days the resignations of judges from the Supreme Court of Justice. According to the Commission, the measure was adopted temporarily to ensure the functionality of the institution and avoid a judicial blockage.

“It is a rapid intervention instrument, an extraordinary but necessary measure. We need to adjust and ensure the legal framework for the functioning of justice, so as to reduce the risks that may arise and ensure people’s access to justice. It is an additional opportunity for honest judges to take a step forward and act for the benefit of the citizens”, said Prime Minister Dorin Recean at the Commission’s meeting.

According to Minister of Justice Veronica Mihailov-Moraru, bearing in mind that several judges have resigned and there is a risk of disruption in the Supreme Court’s work, this temporary measure was needed as a last resort.

“If a good part of the existing vacancies at the Supreme Court of Justice are filled earlier, the decision in question can be reviewed at any time. The decision is taken to ensure the public interest, for the continuation of the examination process of priority cases, including the appeals filed against the pre-vetting commission. Moreover, considering the essential role played by the court system in the process of defending human rights and access to justice, it is essential to preserve its uninterrupted functionality during the state of emergency”, the minister added.
