The National Union of Romanian Judges (UNJR) announced on Friday that it supports the conclusions formulated by Italian magistrates, who publicly accused the Italian government of breaking some of the fundamental human rights, the Italian Constitution and the equality and non-discrimination principles through the recent modifications to the immigration laws.

Two weeks ago, the “Magistratura democratica” professional association claimed, among others, that the recent decrees issued by the Berlusconi Government break the right to free access to Justice.

According to the Italian magistrates, the decree comes against the principles of equality and non-discrimination through its aggravating component in sentences in various crimes, Italian citizens being treated with favors.

The same magistrates say that the right to free access to Justice, as fundamental right, is broke due to the high costs of representation and the complex character of criminal procedures.
