Ilie Chirtoacă: There is a connection between bomb threats and postponement of trials

The justice sector reform envisions rather radical measures. Extraordinary assessments covering judges and prosecutors will be carried out and particular resistance to the change that is manifested in different ways appears as a result, Ilie Chirtoacă, director of the Integrity and Anticorruption Program of the Legal Resources Center from Moldova, stated in an interview with IPN. Referring to those who sabotage in the system, about whom President Maia Sandu spoke at the recent justice sector reform and anticorruption forum, Chirtoacă said that from his viewpoint, there is a connection between the bomb threats and the postponement of particular trials.

The reform, even if it was only started, creates particular inconveniences to those who controlled the justice system and this resistance appears inside consequently, considers Ilie Chirtoacă. However, the process will go on, especially because six of the nine conditions imposed by the European Union for advancing towards accession to the EU refer strictly to the justice sector.

“Paradoxically, the continuation of the reform through the pre-vetting commission is the solution for eliminating those who sabotage the justice sector reform. The commission must determine the financial and ethical integrity of those who will form part of the Superior Council of Magistracy and later of the Superior Council of Prosecutors. When they are cleaned, these management, promotion and investigation entities of the judges and prosecutors will be able to continue the cleaning of the system vertically, from down to up,” said the expert.

The interview entitled “Cases of injustice and the way in which they influenced the amendment of national legislation” was conducted as part of IPN News Agency’s project “Support for the Justice Reform through multimedia coverage of cases of alleged injustice”.
