"Manipulation or threats to your institutions particularly your courts will not only be of concern to our government but to the way Romania is viewed by financial markets", says US Ambassador to Romania Mark H. Gitenstein in a statement received by HotNews.ro. His statement comes as Romania's governing alliance of Social Democrats and Liberals (USL) have launched a series of moves on key people and institutions, including the Constitutional Court, which were described by USL political opponents, some media and commentators as "a coup d'etat" or attacks on the Constitution and the state of law.

Read Ambassador Gitenstein's statement in full:

I am deeply concerned about any attempt to threaten the independence of Romania’s democratic institutions.  Manipulation or threats to your institutions particularly your courts will not only be of concern to our government but to the way Romania is viewed by financial markets.  We have had unfortunate experience in the United States with “court packing” when President Roosevelt tried to change the composition of our Supreme Court when he became unhappy with some of its decisions. These acts were universally condemned.  It was a dark day in an otherwise great presidency and it will be a dark day in Romanian history if the same comes to pass here.

Ambassador Mark H. Gitenstein

VIDEO Facultatile pregatesc oameni cu diploma, dar fara experienta. Cum s-a ajuns ca un sudor sa castige mai mult decat un inginer

200.000 de meseriasi lipsesc in acest moment de pe piata fortei de munca. Asta, in timp ce facultatile pregatesc absolventi care nu-si gasesc de lucru pentru ca firmele au nevoie de oameni cu experienta, nu neaparat cu diploma.  Din aceasta cauza un mecanic, un electrician sau un constructor poate fi mai bine platit decat un absolvent de studii superioare.
