The vice president of the European Commission, Justice, Freedom and Security Commissioner Franco Frattini, begins on Friday a three-day visit to Romania.

The official will meet prime minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu, Interior Minister Vasile Blaga, Justice Minister Monica Macovei, prosecutor general Laura Kovesi, Anti Graft Prosecution head Daniel Morar and the speaker in the house of deputies, Bogdan Olteanu.

The European Commission expects a first report on Romania on March 31, in order to verify how much was accomplished in the Justice reforms. Romania assumed four targets in December 2006 and risks to have the safeguarding measures activated in case the goals weren't reached.
