Judicial Inspection conducting DNA check.
A team of the Judicial Inspection (IJ) is conducting an audit of the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA), April 16-20.
According to a press statement released by IJ on Monday, a team of three judiciary inspectors will be auditing the central office of the National Anti-Corruption Division ordered by the Prosecution Section of the Supreme Council of Magistrates on April 16-20, to remedy some deficiencies.
The audit regards causes that are more than a year old from the date of the first referral, namely the files assigned to the prosecutors Doru Florin Tulus and Mihaiela Moraru Iorga and the procedural communications for the year 2016 regarding the closure orders by ordinance and indictment to see whether or not they were compliant with the provisions of Article 145 in the Code of Criminal Procedure.
The Judicial Inspection informs that following the last check, an order was issued "to monitor the causes and the involvement of senior and junior prosecutors in solving cases older than one year from the date of the first complaint, while ordering a series of measures such as: issuing the investigation plan, especially in complex cases, in accordance with the provisions of Article 82 (d) of the Anti-Corruption Directorate's Internal Regulations; in cases where police officers are mandated to carry out criminal prosecution acts the acts shall be spelled out in the ordinance in a concrete manner, and a deadline shall be set for their execution; the control by the prosecutor of the conduct of the mandated acts against the deadlines set in the files in which the mandate was ordered; effective verification through current operational control by the chief prosecutor and deputy if the manner in which subordinated prosecutors carry out the above-mentioned tasks, as well as their criteria for prioritising the activities carried out; verification of the measures taken by the prosecutors in order to resolve the cases more than one year old from the date of the first referral."
On the other hand, according to the Judicial Inspection, due to constant refusal to submit for verification the files assigned to the DNA prosecutor Mihaela Moraru Iorga, who was removed from office, the pace of the use of evidence in these cases could not be verified.
"As regards the cases assigned to prosecutor Doru Florin Tulus, also removed from office, because the prosecutors to whom the files were assigned did not have the necessary time to study them, the verification of the cases was done only on the files submitted to the judicial inspectors, which is not a real check in a managerial control," IJ claims.
The checks of procedural communications for the year 2016 in the case of closure solutions ordered by ordinance and indictment come after the previous check revealed that because of a failure to report on these issues, it was not possible to verify the communication to all the people concerned by the technical surveillance measures. The judiciary inspectors were shown only a report on the closure solutions ordered by ordinance, not of the ones ordered by indictment.
