By Diyar Guldogan

ANKARA (AA) - The European Parliament and the European Council on Wednesday agreed to appoint Laura Codruta Kovesi as the first European chief prosecutor.

European Public Prosecutor's Office will be an independent and decentralized prosecution office of the block, with the competence to investigate, prosecute and bring to judgment crimes against the EU budget, the EU Commission said in a statement.

The Office's seat will be located in Luxembourg, and Kovesi will sit for a non-renewable term of seven years.

"She will be in charge of organizing the work of the European Public Prosecutor's Office: representing it, directing its activities and taking care of its effective functioning," the Commission said.

Kovesi, 46, was the chief prosecutor of Romania's National Anticorruption Directorate until she was fired from the duty in 2018.
