Romanian Justice minister Monica Macovei approved a package of laws on national security on Monday evening but announced they would not be approved by the Government as soon as its Wednesday regular session because they need the approval of the Supreme Defense Council-CSAT first.

She warned on a TV show that the package has not even been sent to CSAT approval yet.

A key provision of the laws is that the Special Telecommunications Service-STS may be passed under the authority of the Interior Ministry, while the Guard and protection Service-SPP will remain a separate body.
