Chisinau, 28 April /MOLDPRES/ - Moldova’s Constitutional Court (CCM) urges the political parties, civil society and information institutions to calm, mutual respect, constructive dialogue and goodwill.
A statement made public today reads that the call was made after statements had been launched in the media space ‘’able to create a negative public atmosphere around the Constitutional Court and discredit the constitutional judges.’’
„Such statements trigger an uncontrolled public hysteria and pose danger for the functionality of the democracy and the rule of law state. They hit not only the authority of the Constitutional Court, but undermine also Moldova’s authority as state entity before its own people and before the international partners,’’ the CCM statement reads.
The statement, signed by all judges of the High Court, Domnica Manole, Vladimir Turcan, Eduard Ababei, Nicolae Rosca, Liuba Sova, Serghei Turcan, reads that ‘’we swore before the entire people on 16 August 2019 to honestly and conscientiously fulfill the obligations of judge of the Constitutional Court, to defend the constitutional order of Moldova, to comply while exercising the duties only and only with the Constitution. Today, we state with every responsibility that we have fulfilled and we are determined to further fulfill the constitutional powers with honour and dignity.’’
The constitutional judges gave assurances that ‘’the entire work and all rulings of the Constitutional Court will be based exclusively on the Constitution’s norms. The pressure of any kind on the Constitutional Court judges are unacceptable in a democratic state based on the supremacy of law.’’
