Vladimir Cebotari: Any decree concerning prosecutor general will be illegal

Any decree that would concern prosecutor general Eduard Harunjen will be illegal, Democratic MP Vladimir Cebotari stated in a program on Canal 2 TV channel. He referred to an eventual decree to dismiss Harunjen signed by the President following the initiation of the procedure for removing him by Parliament on July 9, IPN reports.

The MP noted an eventual presidential decree can be challenged in the domestic courts of law and at the Venice Commission, but the European organization can adopt only political, recommendatory decisions and these will not have legal effects.

Political commentator Vitaly Catană said it is clear that both the legal procedures and the fundamental principle of separation of powers in the state are being violated. This is a problem as the parliamentary majority acts arbitrarily and aims to subdue the judicial system.
