President Traian Basescu’s nominees for the top jobs in Romania’s main intelligence services received Parliament approval on Wednesday. George Maior, who is due to head the Romanian Intelligence Service-SRI, received 285 votes in favour and 123 against, while Claudiu Saftoiu received 294 votes in favour and 114 against.

The two the former heads of SRI and SIE, who this summer decided to resign after the disappearance of a terrorist suspect, businessman Omar Hayssam.
