“When citizens need protection against acts of violence, it is our duty to ensure the necessary legal framework. Today (Wednesday – no), the Chamber of Deputies, as a decision-making body, adopted the legislative initiative to amend the Criminal Code, which I initiated together with the Minister of Internal Affairs, Lucian Bode. The project foresees the tightening of punishments for crimes committed with violence and aims to discourage such reprehensible behavior”, says Prime Minister Nicolae Ciucă on Facebook on Wednesday.
According to him, the new regulations come as a response to the intensification of incidents that affect the physical integrity of people and come to additionally protect the most vulnerable categories.
Following the debates in the public space, a form was reached that would meet the consensus of the Legislature and civil society.
“I clarified, thus, that the amendments do not in any way target citizens who respect the democratic rules of peaceful public expression, but aim to punish more severely those who use violence and guarantee a safer space for our children and families”. Ciucă also said.
