PAS MP: Regardless of situation, justice sector reform will continue

Although the justice sector reform is a difficult one, it will continue, said PAS MP Igor Chiriac, a member of the parliamentary commission for legal affairs. According to him, the justice sector reform will take longer than the authorities anticipated, but will be completed. On the other hand, Adrian Lebedinschi, of the PSRM, said that following the scandal involving Tatiana Răducanu, citizens’ trust in the vetting process has dropped dramatically, IPN reports.

The representative of the government Igor Chiriac noted that although the justice sector reform is difficult and the system vehemently opposes the cleanup, this will continue. The extraordinary assessment of the ethical and professional integrity of judges and prosecutors is the only way to clear the system of corrupt elements.

“We expect the prosecution body to fight the thieves who have impoverished this country. They should be put in jail. I have seen the dispute around a member of the assessment committee, but whatever the case, this reform must be carried out. The justice sector reform is by no means easy. If we look at the neighboring countries, in Romania, for example, the justice sector reform lasted for over ten years. In Slovakia, Poland, too, it was an arduous process. In Albania, it is also seen that the prosecutors and judges oppose the reform. In our country, the justice sector reform is a bit slower than we wanted, but it must be completed anyway. This is the only solution to reform the judiciary and the prosecution service,” PAS MP Igor Chiriac stated in the talk show “At 360 Degrees” on Radio Moldova.

On the other hand, Socialist MP Adrian Lebedinschi said the scandal involving Tatiana Răducanu, a member of the vetting and pre-vetting commissions, affects the credibility of this process. The people who didn’t pass the vetting or pre-vetting test could challenge the commission’s decisions in court and the state will pay them damages.

“In the Prosecutor’s Office, like other bodies, different interests are pursued and different clans were formed. Therefore, those who expected that Mrs. Dragalin would dance to someone’s tune were sorely mistaken. She probably already sees a political future. There’s been a lot of talk about her in the last couple of years and advertising, both bad and good, is advertising anyway. So, I do not exclude at all the fact that in the future she will be a politician. But if we go back to vetting, this process is illegal. What is the value of the vetting commission’s’ report? It has only advisory value. However, the Superior Council of Prosecutors or the Superior Council of Magistracy must decide. A SCM was created and this includes people suspected of corruption. My opinion is that Tatiana Răducanu should have fought till the end and prove that she is not guilty. Respectively, after everything that has happened, confidence in the outcome of this vetting is zero. And Veronica Dragalin’s approach is a reason for all those who didn’t pass the vetting and pre-vetting to challenge the results and receive fabulous damages from the state,” stated Adrian Lebedinschi.

According to a letter signed by Veronica Dragalin, head of the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office, Tatiana Răducanu, a member of the vetting and pre-vetting commissions, supposedly has ties with Veaceslav Platon and Aureliu Kolenko, Ilan Shor’s main lawyer. After this information appeared in the public space, Tatiana Răducanu resigned from her position as a member of the two assessment commissions, although she rejected the accusations made against her.
