„It deemed adequate that, prior to discussions with the Government, aimed at finding some solutions to surpass the deadlock, I must have consultations with personalities in the legal field, after having met in the initial stage the Upper Magistrates Council (CSM), lawyers, judicial executors, notaries public and judicial liquidators.
I confess that solutions are varied depending on the standpoint of those I have met and in any case solutions cannot be but absolutely Constitutional”, stated President Basescu.
The Ombudsman, Univ.Prof.Dr. Ioan Muraru, pointed out that the situation in justice does not affect the magistrates alone, but the citizens as well.
„I am honored by the opportunity you offer us, to express some points of view related to this issue, the judicial power and to the collateral issues because it is not only a question for the judicial power alone (…), but it is affecting a large number of people and the public authorities.
In fact I am in contact with these issues directly or indirectly as the Ombudsman”, stressed Muraru. Attending the meeting were Univ.Prof.Dr. Viorel Mihai Ciobanu, Univ. Prof.Dr.Valerian Cioclei, Univ.Prof.Dr. Ioan Stanomir, Univ. Lecturer Dr. Traian Briciu.
