The Minister of Justice Tudorel Toader will also participate at the discussion and he declared, on Monday night, that he will ask Timmermans to overcome the “worrying phase”.

“I have met with him many times. I will ask him tomorrow (Tuesday, n.r.) to overcome the concerns, about the rule of law. Let’s discuss punctually: this legislative solution is not good because … it can be directed by modifying X. That is, to overcome the statements of principle but which do not have a documented sequential approach. We will participate in the debates in Parliament,” said Tudorel Toader at Antena 3.

The European Commission’s first vice-president, Frans Timmermans, during the LIBE Commission debate on the situation in Romania, the amendment of the laws of Justice, stating that the EC would not hesitate to bring “before the Romanian government rules are violated”.
