The President of the Republic visited the Supreme Council of Magistracy, where he held an open discussion with representatives of the judiciary on the situation in the justice system.
“As the President of the Republic of Moldova and the guarantor of the observance of the rights and freedoms of citizens, I reminded the judges that all our compatriots, including the business community, want to feel free and safe, and justice plays a key role in fulfilling these requirements.
I stressed that justice is administered in the name of the law, and judges are responsible for it in the face of the whole society. I also noted that transformation of judges into a political tool in the hands of a certain group of persons or regime is an unacceptable practice in a democratic state,” said Igor Dodon.
“In this context, I said that the first step in this direction would be appointment of new judges of the Constitutional Court within a transparent, fair and operational process. I am firmly convinced that there are honest and incorruptible judges, and this allows me to be sure that the judiciary is able to cope with the existing challenges, and our society and partners are waiting for genuine reforms and changes for the better,” Igor Dodon concluded.
