The USR leader, Dacian Cioloș, discussed on Tuesday, in Strasbourg, with the European Commissioner for Justice, about the case of excluding Cristi Danileț from the judiciary. Cioloș said that another hot topic is the SIIJ: the European Commission will refer the matter to the EU Court of Justice again if Romania does not abolish the Section.

  • “There are no slips from the rule of law in Romania that are not in the European Union, as the toxic leaders of the PSD-PNL-UDMR coalition probably hope. Today, in Strasbourg, the European Commissioner for Justice, Didier Reynders, confirmed to me that he is following the Danileț case and that he has already asked for more information about the decisions taken last night by the Superior Council of Magistracy (SCM), Dacian Cioloș wrote on Facebook.

“The abolition of the Section for the Investigation of Criminal Offenses (SIIJ) is one of the topics on the agenda of the European Commission, and the postponement of the abolition of this section will have consequences. From the discussions with Commissioner Reynders, I understand that the Commission’s concern stems from the fact that, although there has been a ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) since May, things are stagnant and, worse, in the meantime, other magistrates are afraid. Didier Reynders confirmed to me that, in the absence of the abolition of the SIIJ, the European Commission will again refer the matter to the Court of Justice at the beginning of next year, with the risk of imposing a fine for Romania, because the CJEU decision is not respected. There is a fear in the European Union that, after Poland and Hungary, a new problem state could emerge “, added the USR leader.
