Yesterday's decisions in the Constitutional Court, making Basescu a president hard to be suspended and maintaining Monica Macovei as Justice Minister, make it to the front pages of most newspapers.
Here and there, an old investigation subject is revived. But the nice thing about this Thursday is that some success-stories find their place in the Romanian printed media without stinking by a mile like bribe or unmarked advertising.
The first story is the one of Ingvar Kamprad, one of the richest men in the world, owner of IKEA, who visits Romania for a week, in order to meet 12 local providers for his stores. IKEA will soon open its first store in Bucharest, so the visit has some meaning.
A team from Evenimentul Zilei follows Kapmrad around the country, finding he's a normal man (they seen it a few days ago in Bill Gates and they couldn't believe it).
Another cover story dealing with success is the Tuborg factory built from scratch on the edge of a Bucharest neighborhood. The factory became the only project on the beer market developed from zero in Eastern Europe that now reached a production of 140 million liters of beer, currently exported all around the world, as far as Hong Kong (same Evenimentul Zilei).
"Red judges give Basescu two orange gifts", is the title in Gandul, referring to the decision at the Constitutional Court, taken by old judges that served in the Communist regime, compared to the "revolutionary orange" Basescu used during the electoral campaign.
Same Gandul notes the first official reaction in the scandal launched by Associated Press, referring to the use of Romanian weaponry to hit American helicopters in Iraq.
Romanian Defense Minister Sorin Frunzaverde says that the Romanian origin of the rocked launchers is at least unlikely, given the very strict laws here.
Speaking of Iraq: Liberals reopen the discussions on the withdrawal of the Romanian troops from Iraq, following the lead of UK's PM Tony Blair, who recently announced the return of 1,600 military to their homes, Cotidianul reads.
Some good news for immigrants and expats: all foreigners may study Romanian for free, within a new social integration project, Gandul reads.
Not the same pink news for Romanian migrants working in Spain: the work visas aren't quite European and the restrictions have to be fought against in Brussels, Adevarul reads.
And things won’t improve much upon their return, in case they decide to buy a car from Spain or other European country. The Finance Minister, Sebastian Vladescu, won't give up the first registration tax in a million years, saying the only problem is how to apply it so that the EU would not consider it discriminatory (Adevarul).
And a piece of old (and old-fashion) scandal: the former head of the National Lottery bought his peace offering a lot of advertising to all newspapers, as well as expensive gifts to parliamentarians and ministers, including watched, paintings and music equipment, Romania Libera reads.
