Romania found its future commissioner at the European Commission, but the problems just begin: Germany is about to demand the activation of the Justice and anti corruption safeguarding clauses, starting on January 1st, the first day for Romania as an European country.
Meanwhile, back home, a top investigative journalists admits his collaboration with the former political police, Securitate.

A shock-interview in Cotidianul unveils some old news: Cornel Ivanciuc, head of the investigative journalism department at Academia Catavencu, was a snitch for the former political police, Securitate, and was also paid for it.

About three months ago, another top journalist, Carol Sebastian, was publicly executed in the same newspaper for the same kind of collaboration, although Sebastian had only one “victim” who used to read his notes before they were turned in to the Securitate officer.

Today, the Academia Catavencu editor in chief, Doru Buscu, says he was aware since 1995 of Ivanciuc’s collaboration, but never regretted maintaining him in the editorial team. In a typically Romanian manner, A.C has been gathering funds for the past two years in order to build a monument for the anti-Communist Resistance.

As for more bad news, same Cotidianul reads that the business environment in Romania is suffocated by 500 papers, stamps, approvals and documents required for normal functioning, many of the bureaucratic operations also demanding some bribe to fasten things up a bit
In Europe, things are also far from pink.

The German political parties decided to demand today the activation of the Justice and anti corruption safeguarding clauses, starting on January 1st, the first day for Romania as an European country, according to Adevarul.

Not much to worry about, Gandul replies, showing that the officials in Brussels already decided to vote against the German suggestion.

With or without the safeguarding clauses, Romanians illegally working in the United Kingdom are to be fined with 1000 pounds, some 1500 euros, same Gandul informs.

Well, they might as well work in Romania for some energy companies, where it seems we would need soon some supplementary labor force.

Unless, of course, Greenpeace doesn’t get to shut down the works at the Cernavoda atomic plant’s new reactors, as Gandul suggests it might happen.

All’s well that ends well, we may say, and Romania Libera reminds us that the dignitaries’ illegal wealth is still untouchable, even for the newly born National Integrity Agency. So long, anti corruption, and have a nice life!
