to the press, to the public, to the Parliament, to the Government
and to the Council of Europe!

"The press was lied to, the population was lied to, the Parliament was lied to, the Executive was lied to, the Council of Europe was lied to".

Monica Macovei "seriously damaged the constitutional stature and the public credibility of the entire judicial system".
Monica Macovei "constantly attacked the Parliament and discredited the legislative process in her statements both inside and outside the country".
