The judge of the Rezina District Court would be placed under criminal investigation after he illegally applied the provisions of the law on amnesty to the remaining term that Proca had to serve, reports the press service of the General Prosecutor’s office.

Acting  general prosecutor Eduard Harunjen, received Tuesday, October 11, the consent of Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) to initiate criminal proceedings and criminal liability of the judge who had ruled knowingly a judgement contrary to law, regarding the accusation of committing extremely serious crimes and heinous crimes.

According to prosecutors, in May 2010, the magistrate illegally applied the provisions of the law on amnesty to the remaining term that Proca, who had been convicted for heinous crimes, had to serve, thus decreasing it by ¼ to 3 years 5 months and 4 days. The police stated that the man was convicted for heinous crimes committed with extreme cruelty in the presence of a minor and which resulted in two deaths.

Also in September 2010, the same judge released conditionally and ahead of schedule the same convict, releasing him of the term of 4 years, 1 month and 18 days and establishing the bonds provided for by the enforcement code. „ After the unjustified release of the convicted Vitalie Proca,  in the period when he was supposed to serve his sentence established by national court, he committed a number of serious crimes on the territory of other states  (November 26, 2012 – attempt of killing on the territory of Romania and was recently  sentenced by the Court of Appeal Bucharest to a term of 21 years and 8 months; March, 20 2012 - attempted murder of the Russian banker, Gherman Gorbuntov on the territory of UK  )”, reports a press release of the General Prosecutor’s office.

Prosecutors say that criminal proceedings were started after they acted in response and the acting general prosecutor will institute criminal proceedings when the CSM consent is released.
