Justice Minister Re-Sends President CNSAS Files For Chief Anticorruption Prosecutor Nominee

Romanian Justice Minister Tudorel Toader announced on Thursday that he re-sent President Klaus Iohannis the CNSAS certificates which show that his nominee for chief anticorruption prosecutor, Adina Florea, did not collaborate with the country’s former Communist political police.


In a post on his official Facebook page, the minister also requested the president to reconsider his refusal to appoint Florea as chief of the country’s National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA).

The minister stated that CNSAS, the agency in charge of studying the former political police’s archives, sent top judicial watchdog CSM several certificates which prove that the Constanta prosecutor did not work for or collaborate with the Securitate on December 28.

“Today I have sent the president the mentioned certificates which prove the meeting of legal requirements for the proposals, while also requesting him to reconsider his refusal based on non-existent reasons,” wrote Toader.

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis rejected again on Wednesday the nomination of Constanta prosecutor Adina Florea as chief of the country’s National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA), citing as reasons the same procedural issues which led to his initial refusal.

According to the president, the nomination documents re-sent by Justice Minister Tudorel Toader failed to contain the proof that Florea never collaborated by the country’s former Communist political police, the Securitate.

This was also the reason for his initial refusal to appoint the Constanta prosecutor for the role. According to legal conditions for DNA chief prosecutors, their nomination file must contain proof that they were not part of and did not collaborate with the Securitate before 1990, specifically a review given by Romania’s agency for studying the Securitate archives, CNSAS.
