HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVISTS DEMAND CANCELING LAWYERS’ LICENSES FOR FALSIFYING POLITICALLY-MOTIVATED CASES

Activists of the “Right to Justice” human rights association demand the Union of Lawyers to recall licenses from prosecutors and judges who participated in fabricating politically-motivated cases.

The statement, published by the organization, expresses indignation about the fact that ex-judges Ion Druta and Oleg Sternioala, former prosecutors Lilian Bakalim, Vladislav Bobrov and others got licenses of lawyers.

“We are condemning actions of the Union of Lawyers on issuing licenses to these odious judges and corrupt prosecutors, which in fact were thrown out from the judiciary”, the document says.

Activists insist that the ex-workers of the prosecution and judges participate in persecution for political reasons, raider attacks on businesses, fabricated cases against dissidents, were breaking people’s lives, including lawyers with active civil position.

“However, today the Union of Lawyers is issuing licenses to these supporters of Plahotniuc’s regime, despite their repute and involvement in crimes against human rights. If our requirements are ignored, we will be forced to resort to protests, informing the general public and external partners on the situation and legal profession”, the document says.
