Romanian Chief Anticorruption Prosecutor Has Mandate Extended Until Yearend

Under the law, chief prosecutors’ can be delegated for 90 days at most and delegations may be extended a single time, by another maximum 90 days.
 
Justice minister Catalin Predoiu proposed the appointment of Monica Serbanescu as head of the Anticorruption Department, or DNA, and the appointment of Morar as high representative of the Justice Ministry in Brussels or deputy chief prosecutor at DNA. Morar declined both offers.
 
Early September, the prosecutors’ section of the High Council of Magistrates, or CSM, rejected four to three votes the appointment of Serbanescu in the position of chief anticorruption prosecutor. Under the law, the justice minister gets a consultative vote from the Magistrates' Council and then sends the appointment procedure to the head of state, who makes the final decision.
 
The minister sent the proposal to the head of state mid-September, but the latter hasn’t yet formulated an answer.
