The iron lady of Romania will become the finished product of European justice …
Since 2013, she has filed lawsuits against several thousand elected officials, so she has emerged as the woman to be shot. The socialist power, which currently chairs the European Union, finally won its dismissal last July. She became simple “prosecutor” within the public prosecutor’s office. Investigations for “abuse of power”, “corruption” and “perjury” were opened against her in Bucharest … The Romanian Minister of Justice has sent to his 27 counterparts a missive aimed at denigrating the candidacy of his compatriot . ”
Laura Codruta Kovesi, who became a symbol of the fight against corruption in her country, won 26 votes to lead the future European Public Prosecutor’s Office, in a secret ballot in the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) .
The Committee on Budgetary Control of the European Parliament (CONT) voted on Tuesday evening for the preferred candidate for the position of Prosecutor General of the European Public Prosecutor’s Office.
Laura Codruta Kovesi (Romania) takes first place with 12 votes, Jean-François Bohnert (France) is second with 11 votes and Andres Ritter (Germany) got one vote, this Wednesday the story was repeated, “Kovesi, Bohnert and Ritter “.
This is the third victory for Romania, after that of the specialized commission, made up of 12 legal experts. This technical committee nominated the three finalists in the order of the scores: 1. Kovesi; 2. Bohnert; 3. Ritter, this Tuesday and the votes of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE), this Wednesday.
Laura Codruta Kovesi (Romania) is in first place with 26 votes, Jean-François Bohnert (France) is second with 22 votes and Andres Ritter (Germany) has one.
Voting in the LIBE Committee, a wider committee of 60 members. This vote will count enormously for the appointment of the European Prosecutor.
Subsequently, the LIBE Committee of the European Parliament will negotiate with the Council of the COREPER EU until they agree on the winner.
The aim is to appoint the first Prosecutor of the European Public Prosecutor’s Office responsible, from the end of 2020, to combat “serious cross-border crime affecting the EU budget”, according to the official definition. The gendarme of the corruption of Europe.
If negotiations between the Council and the European Parliament are complicated to agree on the same candidate, Ms. Kovesi inflicts a humiliation to the ruling Social Democratic Party (PSD) in Bucharest, which had removed her from office head of the Romanian Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office (DNA) and who for weeks has been campaigning to discredit her. An attitude that has shocked the European scene, while Romania assumes the presidency of the European Union.
“The number of e-mails I get to mess with Laura Codruta Kovesi is incredible,” Green MEP Greens Judith Sargentini said on Tuesday. Some emails sent to several members of the LIBE Commission, refer to the many legal wars that the PSD started against Ms. Kovesi to sow doubt on its integrity, according to La Libre.be.
And yet, Laura Codruta Kovesi alone convinced, against the government of his own country.
