Chisinau, March 27 /MOLDPRES/- This week, parliament will vote on the new composition of the Superior Council of the Magistracy (CSM) from among the non-judges, who were evaluated by the Pre-Vetting Commission. Speaker Igor Grosu made the statement today.

The official pointed out that following the adoption of the document, the CSM will become functional. "This week is important for the judiciary in the Republic of Moldova. We know the context, the reform is complicated, there is resistance not to advance. The candidates are from among the civil society, who passed the Pre-Vetting. Thus, from the moment of the adoption of the Parliament's decision, the CSM will be functional, even with a reduced composition, and will proceed to unblock certain judicial processes. We send a very clear message to those who try to oppose it: the reform does not stop, it goes forward, and the proof is the decisions we are going to vote on this week", said Grosu.

He said that this week, the Parliament will adopt the Law on the Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ) in the second reading. "It is a package of changes that reflect the Court's activity model. Thus, the institution will rule only in cases of major importance for society. At the same time, the composition of the Court will be changed. It will consist of 11 judges and nine non-judges. Also, the Parliament will adopt in the first reading a draft on delimitation of the powers of the Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office. The parliament will support a package of laws on the Intelligence and Security Service, the delimitation of the institution's powers and their adjustment to the standards of special services in countries with a consolidated democracy", Grosu said.
