Former president Ion Iliescu risks to spend the rest of his life behind bars in case the latest allegations against him prove to be real. Charged in a file on the events on June 13-15, 1990, when the coal miners were called to Bucharest in order to repress an anti-Communist demonstration, Iliescu finds himself about to be accused of instigation to manslaughter and mayhem.

According to the Romanian laws, the instigator must receive the same penalty as the author, in this case 15 to 25 years in jail. The latest accusations against Ion Iliescu, brought up by military prosecutors, refer to the events on June 13, 1990, when 4 people were killed after the Police used their fire weapons against the demonstrants, Evenimentul Zilei reads.

"Iliescu demanded war ammunition and bayonets" is the title in Romania Libera, where "intelligence synthesis, activity logs, official phone conversations and other military documents" are invoked to support the accusations against Iliescu.

Beside the news on Iliescu, things are mostly the same for a country where it's already too hot to breathe.

The intellectual elites will collaborate in writing a new, modern and European Constitution, according to a public announcement made on Tuesday by Gabriel Liiceanu, president of the Social Dialogue Group (GDS). The project will compete against several politician-made drafts, Evenimentul Zilei and other newspapers read.

The European Union is worried with the slow Justice reforms in Romania, German daily "Handelsblatt" informed on its online edition, according to Evenimentul Zilei.
The deputy chief of the EU delegation to Romania, Onno Simmons, recently declared in a conference that "after former Justice Minister Monica Macovei was laid off, the things went wrong in the anti-corruption campaign".
The German journalists are extremely skeptical when it comes to the new Justice Minister, Tudor Chiuariu, "who diminishes the anti-corruption campaign capabilities of his ministry, Evenimentul Zilei reads.

The reply comes instantly in Gandul: "The EU states do nothing to fight corruption in the private affairs", the newspaper reads, quoting a recent statement made by Franco Frattini, the European Commissioner for Justice.

The European Commission denounced the lack of legal tools that may be used in fighting corruption in the private area, so that the anti-corruption campaign would be complete.
