The House of Deputies approved on Tuesday modifications to the law that would allow the access of Romanian citizens to their own files written down by the former Securitate. The law still needs to pass in the Senate.

The Greater Romania Party opposed the law modifications during the debates last week; however, the Tuesday vote showed the Social Democrats voted against as well.

The law, also known as Ticu Law named after the initiator Ticu Dumitrescu, obliges all public persons to state whether they have collaborated with communist political militia. Trying to conceal the truth is considered a crime and will be punished accordingly. The law will also enable all Romanian citizens to ask and check their own files.

The lustration law was also voted upon and endorsed by the Senate on Monday.
