 The court must decide on the compensations
for material and moral damages incurred;
 Such procedures otherwise meet the
requirements of this paragraph.

to ensure that information is provided to the
public on access to administrative and judicial
review.
According to the Civil Procedure Code, legal
procedures in Romania are public and any

Recently, the Superior Council of Magistracy
has decided that all public interest decisions
shall be made available on the internet, on the
websites of the courts.

Although the databases of the Ministry of
Justice contain statistical data regarding free of
charge legal assistance/public legal aid,
depending on the type of court and the state of
the procedural stage, by category of action and
objects for the period 01.01.2011 - 01.05.2013,
the legal situations related to environmental law
whose protection was requested in the front of
the court of law could not be separately and
explicitly individualized.

or the activity they provide, also considering the circumstances of
the case.”
