Of recent case law of the European Court of Human Rights

1. The decision on inadmissibility in the case of Ion Sgaibă against Romania. Non-exhaustion of domestic remedies, when invoking for the first time the lack of impartiality of judges of the court of appeal only through an appeal for annulment against the irrevocable decision that settled the case.

(Dragos Calin presentation)

Of recent case law in the field of the judiciary and magistrates status

1. Affecting the status of judge / prosecutor by extending suspension effects from office disposed under art. 62 para. (1) of Law no. 303/2004. These consist only of non-payment of salary during the suspension, failure to take account of that period in determining seniority in the judiciary, respectively the inapplicability of prohibitions and incompatibilities provided in Art. 5 and Art. 8 of the same law.

2. During the posting or appointment to another public office, the judge retains its capacity, which is why are applicable the provisions of Law no. 303/2004 on the statute of judges and prosecutors.

3. The contest for promoting to execution positions of judges and prosecutors. The report of committee solving the appeals to scale and motivation and the report complaints cannot be circumscribed to the concept of administrative act, in the sense of individual unilateral act issued by a public authority, in regime of public power in order to organize law enforcement or the actual enforcement of the law, which gives rise to, modify or extinguish legal relationships.

4. Regulation on organization and holding of promotion of judges and prosecutors. Requirements of objectivity and predictability. The possibility to file contestations to the scale, settlement deadline, the way of solving contestations and the effects of different solutions that can be adopted following the settlement of contestations to scale.

5. As regards the selection procedure for National Institute of Magistracy trainers, Law no. 304/2004 contains no provision, which shows the legislature’s intention to grant a wide margin of discretion of the competent authority, the Superior Council of Magistracy, concerning the normative administrative act content that shall be adopted for this purpose.

6. Given the fact that applicant has submitted his resignation from the post held before finalization of the admission contest to the magistracy, therefore before to make sure that he will be appointed as prosecutor, is obvious the absence of any causal link between the annulled administrative act through which it was rejected for the admission contest for magistracy, and the damage regarding the deprivation of income.
