Bulgarian President Commends Romanian Judicial System

  • Bulgaria Diplomacy

BG_President_5President Rosen Plevneliev commended the Romanian judicial system and the country’s efforts in tackling corruption at the highest levels, admitting that Bulgaria was lagging behind in this respect.

Following a meeting with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, Plevneliev pointed to the several instances of the sentencing of former ministers in Bulgaria’s northern neighbour, daily Dnevnik repors.

Plevneliev, who is on a one-day official visit to Bucharest, is the first Head of State to visit Iohannis, following the latter’s inauguration in December 2014.

Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov, who has been in Romania since Thursday and met with his Romanian colleague Bogdan Aurescu, is also part of the Bulgarian delegation.

Plevneliev noted that on an annual basis there are over 860 000 judicial rulings in Bulgaria, 94 % of which are upheld at the next instance. The problem lies in less than 100 lawsuits, which are of high public interest, but no developments have been made on them.

The Head of State said that he observed some positive developments in the judiciary, pointing to the latest decisions of the Supreme Judicial Council (VSS) and the dismissal of Vladimira Yaneva as chair of the Sofia City Court (SGS).

Iohannis revealed that Romania carried out the reforms since it believed in their necessity rather than because the country aimed at receiving good reports under the CVM mechanism.
