High Court: Klaus Iohannis was not in situation of incompatibility
The High Court of Cassation and Justice on Wednesday dismissed an appeal lodged by the National Agency for Integrity and ruled that President of Romania Klaus Iohannis was not in a situation of incompatibility while serving as mayor of Sibiu.
The High Court judges dismissed the Agency appeal as being groundless and sustained a ruling passed by the Court of Appeal in Alba Iulia (central Romania) on Sept. 25, 2013, which had established that Iohannis was not in a state of incompatibility.
As a result, the report drawn up by the Agency in this case was cancelled, with the ruling being final.
In April 2013, Iohannis was declared to be in a state of incompatibility by the Integrity Agency, since he was simultaneously mayor of central Sibiu city and a city representative in the General Shareholders Assembly of the Water and Sewerage Company and the Farmer’s Markets Company.
