"I have participated in that discussion at the coalition. There has been no such decision made. The decision was to wait for the Venice Commission to issue an opinion and is believed that the respective opinion will come at the beginning of July. After receiving that opinion a final decision regarding the dismantling of the SIIJ shall be made and I expect a happy ending in this case. I would say that these are the final days of this section, which will have to end its activity soon, there is already little time left," explained Stelian Ion.
