It is not possible to cancel the service pensions, on Tuesday said the Justice Minister, Stelian Ion, but a level as balanced as possible with the salary is wanted.
"There are ongoing discussions. Representatives of the judiciary, the president of the CSM (Supreme Council of Magistrates), the president of the High Court and the Prosecutor General will be present at today's discussions, and we will discuss today (Tuesday), maybe another day, too, the issue of pensions, but not the idea of effectively eliminating these pensions, because it is not possible, we know very well, there have been attempts over time, we have sounded the alarm over time not to create this illusion in the public space and for this discourse be not fed, that these pensions can be eliminated altogether. These service pensions are protected by the Constitution and by the decisions of the Constitutional Court," minister Stelian Ion said at the Ministry of Labour.
He added that it's important that it is reached "a balanced level, as close as possible to the salary, like the European norms say and the international criteria suggest." reports agerpres
