The executive has modified the Law on Prosecutor's Office: Prime Minister will elect the candidates for general prosecutor who will be proposed to the Superior Council of Prosecutors.
"I'm ready to assume the political responsibility to select a list of candidates for the position of general prosecutor and send it to the Superior Council of Prosecutors. I have a message for prosecutors: You had to work in a politicized system, executing orders from above.
We don't wish to take revenge. On the contrary, we want you to work freely and exercise your rights. We need to start a new tab in the history of the Moldova's Justice so that the general prosecutor can work side by side with you", stressed Prime Minister Maia Sandu.
Andrei Nastase, who is also present at the government meeting, favors the new bill.
"I have a message to prosecutors and judges that you should start looking for a new master. The era of politicized judicial system in Moldova has ceased and this bill will intensify the effort to deoligarch the state", said Nastase.
