The Minister of the Interior, Lucien Bude, intervenes in the scandal caused by the trial in which he judged whether Raed Arafat was the head of the DSU or not. The trial is held in the Court of Appeal Alba Iulia.
Specifically, Budd, more than two weeks after the trial, made a statement regarding the position taken by Raed Arafat.
Moreover, the statement of the Minister of the Interior, most likely, comes in the context in which the Ministry of the Interior, in the trial of the Court of Appeal of Alba Iulia, requested her to be presented as an intervention. More precisely, it will be the lawyers of the Ministry who will take over the defense at the trial in Alba Iulia.
The next court session will take place on May 9, 2022. In general, Budd said that at the moment, Raed Arafat has been explicitly appointed as Head of the Emergency Department and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Ministry of Interior and that his appointment has been made. eight years ago.
What Minister Bud said about the position of Raed Arafat
At the request of the AUR Parliamentary Group, Budd participated in the “Government Hour” in the “Government Hour”, the topic of discussion was “Quality held by Foreign Minister Raed Arafat in the Department of Emergency Situations”.
“The separation of powers in the state is a fundamental constitutional principle. But to some it seems that compliance with the constitution is only optional. The legislature cannot interfere in the judiciary, and the plenary session of the House of Representatives is not a court. We do not decide here whether a person has the right to hold office in the state. Romanian. In this particular case, the validity of the ruling rests with the court, which is charged with resolving such a case”, stated the minister, citing agerpres.ro.
“With regard to the appointment of foreign ministers, the ABC legislature informs us that the appointment and dismissal of foreign ministers is the capacity of the prime minister. In this case we are talking about an appointment based on the then prime minister’s decision of 2014, supplemented by subsequent normative work highlighting the quality of the head of the emergency department in Mr. Raed Arafat.
Today, Mr. Raed Arafat has been expressly appointed as Head of the Emergency Department, and Secretary of State in the Ministry of Interior. I think it is not the person holding a temporary position in the architecture of the Roman state that should occupy us so much, but rather the level of training of that person, the way this institution operates, the tangible results and its impact on society and our lives.
What we leave behind is far more important than discussing the person himself. So I wonder when will we be able to overcome superficial approaches and when will we move to the next level of understanding and practicing politics? I would like it not to remain a rhetorical question and to act until it is too late. This way of doing politics has already become tiring and cumbersome for citizens alike and unfit for the political class,” stated Lucien Bude.
He said he was asked for an appointment not during his tenure, but eight years ago.

“I think you are all aware of the absurdity and embarrassment of the situation and I am convinced that most of you do not respond to this kind of politics. A political approach, built on a track record of revenge, although it focuses strictly on obtaining the potential benefit of the image. A small benefit, in my opinion, is equal to zero. Lucien Budd added.
The Minister reminded that the appointment and dismissal of Ministers of State is the responsibility of the Prime Minister.
According to him, Arafat was appointed in 2014, based on a decision of the then prime minister, supplemented by subsequent normative laws that highlight the quality of the head of the emergency department.
“I expect that for AUR leaders even a final and irrevocable court decision will not be enough, which may overturn the decision of the Alba Iulia Court of Appeal, and the judge will be summoned to Parliament to explain his legal solution,” he said. my body.
He added that it was not the person holding a temporary position in the architecture of the Roman state who should care so much, but rather its preparation and the work of the institution in question.
“What we leave behind is far more important than a discussion of the person himself. So I wonder when we will be able to overcome superficial approaches and when to move on to the next level of understanding and practicing politics? I would like it not to remain a rhetorical question and to act until it is too late. This style of political work is already tiring and exhausting. The citizens are alike and ineligible for the political class,” said the Minister of the Interior.
What happened so far in the trial at the Alba Yulia Court of Appeal

The court also declared the motive, which showed that holding the position of Minister of State in the Ministry of the Interior is a necessary condition, but not sufficient to prove the quality of the head of the emergency department.
The court held that Prime Minister’s Resolution No. 2014/20 Relied on I’ve proven that mr. Dr. Raed Arafat holds only the position of Minister of State in the Ministry of Interior, without the file containing an administrative law that formalizes the implementation of the provisions of Article Take it. No. 2 of Geo. 1/2014, according to which the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Ministry of the Interior is appointed as the head of the Emergency Situations Department, bearing in mind that The position of Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Ministry of the Interior is a necessary but not sufficient condition for demonstrating the quality of the Head of the Emergency Department”, specified in the court decision of Alba Yulia, as of March 28, 2022.

The disassembly is easy, and it presents the truth through the legal documents issued at the level of the Ministry of Interior that prove through the most recent law in force and at the moment, the fact that I occupy position 3 in the administrative structure of the emergency MIA Attitudes Department.”
It should be noted that the appointment of the Minister of Foreign Affairs is the responsibility of the Prime Minister, and the appointment of a position in the administrative structure belongs to the Minister as appears from the document contained in the appendix!
