Scrisoare USR către liderii grupurilor din PE pentru susţinerea lui Kovesi
Preşedintele USR Dan Barna a trimis scrisori către liderii grupurilor din Parlamentul European pentru susţinerea candidaturii Laurei Codruţa Kovesi pentru postul de procuror european.
We are writing to you in support of Ms. Laura Codruta Kovesi’s candidature for Chief Prosecutor of the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO). Save Romania Union (USR) is confident that the appointment of Ms. Laura Codruta Kovesi in this position will be a success, significantly contributing to strengthening the trust in the European justice system among citizens across the EU and non-EU member states in the region.
In her capacity as the General Prosecutor of Romania (2006-2012) and, subsequently, Chief Prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) in Romania (2013-2018), Ms. Laura Codruta Kovesi succeeded in proving that even in an hostile political environment the justice system can be independent and that the fight against corruption must be entrenched as a fundamental condition for any democratic state. She has proven that changing the justice system for the better is possible.
Ms. Kovesi’s experience and dedication during her mandate at the helm of the DNA could stand as an inspiration, an example to follow for both EU members states, as well as for neighboring countries such Serbia, Ukraine, Republic of Moldova or Georgia, in the process of internalizing EU values while aspiring towards European integration.
We call on you to endow her with a vote of confidence in the European Parliament.
President of Union Save Romania
Member of Parliament
