District 5 court judges rejected on Monday the action of President Basescu through which he requested moral damages to deputy Mugurel Surupaceanu for his statements made on the use of light drugs, news agency Agerpres reads.

I won, I am glad that justice is fair and I appreciate the courage this young judge had, it is a very good signal for the Romanian democracy, Surupaceanu said after the trial. I hope this is the start of a new fight against drugs, he added.

The President said that the Presidency set up a team of experts and said that he refused to promulgate a draft law initiated by Surupaceanu that put forward a more drastic take on light drugs use.
