France, Germany consider backing Romanian for European Chief Prosecutor

Bundestag’s Chairman of the European Affairs Committee Gunther Krichbaum said on Thursday, February 7 in Bucharest that France and Germany, although having their own candidates for the European Prosecutor’s Office, could reach a compromise to support the former head of Romanian National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA), Laura Codruţa Kovesi, says

“Ms Kovesi’s competencies are undoubtedly true, she is practically predestined for this position and I could imagine, for example, that Germany and France could reach a compromise and find a mutually agreed solution in favour of the Romanian candidate,” he was quoted as saying, reported.

“I also made a request to the Romanian justice minister to support the Romanian candidate because she is a candidate who has a chance to reach a high European position and she would practically be challenged by her own people,” Krichbaum said on Thursday in a press conference in Bucharest.
