CPBR: Letter to CSM “not meant to interfere with the act of justice”

Newsroom 25/08/2016 | 18:52

The letter of the Council of Banking Employers in Romania (CPBR) towards the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) had an institutional nature and did not intend to create media or public pressure, or interfere with the act of justice, CPBR said Thursday I a statement, following a CSM report on the letter in question.

“We insist on the fact that the address sent by the CPBR to the CSM had a strictly institutional character, which did not, in any way, intend to create media pressure, public or any other nature and that the posting of an address with an institutional character was not determined by the CPBR. As we explained one month earlier, CPBR did not intend, by the letter sent to the CSM, any interference with the act of justice,” the statement read.

The CPBR representatives remind the fact that the goal of the letter was to point out that courts are providing completely different solutions in identical cases, given that the legal framework is unitary.

“We started from the premise that, judging by the existing legislation, unitary, the courts will provide equally unitary solutions, contributing to increasing predictability for all sides. In this context, CPBR representatives believed it was appropriate to offer information and technical expertise in what regards the functioning of financial products and services, but without the intention to influence the act of justice. Accepting or not such proposals, remains, of course, at the discretion of the decision-makers on the carrying out of such programs,” the CPBR statement reads.

The document also states that the letter sent by the CPBR to the CSM was an institutional correspondence and the “its interpretation as a personal opinion of CPBR president is regrettable.”
