Judicial Inspectorate to examine judges who decided to move Șor case

Minister of Justice Sergiu Litvinenco will request the Judicial Inspectorate and the Ministry of Justice to examine the actions and behavior of the judges of the Supreme Court of Justice who allowed the Șor case to be transferred from the Cahul Appeals Court to the Chisinau Appeals Court. The announcement was made in the September 21 meeting of the Supreme Council of Magistracy, IPN reports.

According to the minister, the given judges are Nadejda Toma, Ion Guzun and Anatolie Țurcan, who ordered to transfer the Șor case. “I note that all the transfer requests in which there were invoked the absence of appearances of independence, including those determined by the public debate of the case, unsuitable relations between a judge and one of the lawyers for the accused were rejected,” stated Sergiu Litvinenco.

He noted that the decision to transfer the Șor case, of August 20, 2021, was accepted by the panel members who took part in the examination of similar applications, including on August 4, 2021, and earlier supported the rejection solution. “In a period after the invention of the formulation “existence of a collective suspicion of impartiality of the Cahul Appeals Court”, which is in 16 days, they adopted a diametrically opposed solution that creates confusion, including a dangerous precedent and lack of image for the judiciary.”

By the same decision of August 20, the Supreme Court of Justice ordered to uphold the Cahul Appeals Court’s judgment by which the temporary freeing of Ilan Şor under judicial control was replaced with arrest and putting on the wanted list.

The first hearing at the Chisinau Appeals Court following the transfer of the case from the Cahul Appeals Court was adjourned as one of the three judges of the panel, Stelian Teleucă, announced that he will refrain from examining this case.

A new hearing was set for today, September 21.
