Most newspapers on Thursday read about the recent scandal involving private university Spiru Haret and its accreditation, leaving some 100,000 people without a diploma. Elsewhere in the news, the financial crisis pressured constructors to postpone or block works for at least 20 residential areas in Bucharest. Last but not least, journalists pertaining to media moguls Vantu and Voiculescu were not allowed to travel with the Presidential plane, on grounds that the plane is full.

Most newspapers on Thursday continue to cover the scandal generated against private university Spiru Haret. Gandul quotes Education minister Ecaterina Andronescu in an exclusive interview saying that Spiru Haret diplomas will not be canceled and that all those holding a diploma would have to be examined again, irrespective of the year they finished.

Andronescu dispelled the myth that all diplomas will be declared void. She explained that all those registered for unaccredited programs will have a chance to receive special diplomas, once they are re-examined. She assured that the ministry is searching for solutions to deal with the matter in a proper way.

At the moment, some 56,000 diplomas issued by Spiru Haret are blocked by the Education ministry. Andronescu urged the university to submit for accreditation the rest of the programs (90% of them).

Contradicting information in the newspapers today, as Evenimentul Zilei reads that Education minister declared that all those holding an unaccredited diploma from Spiru Haret University at the national level will not be able to use them.

The newspaper reads that there are some 100,000 people in this situation. One of the causes of this phenomenon is that Romanians are interested to have a diploma by all means even though it has no value per se.

Cotidianul reads that on top of everything, Spiru Haret lobbies for a new branch in Germany, through the help of a Bundestag member who was offered a position as associate professor and  business perspective.

The newspaper reads about the German Parliamentary Joachim Gunther who helped Spiru Haret offiicals to open up a second branch in Berlin. The Parliamentary admitted, on the day of the inauguration that he started lobbying for a new branch in Germany, at Plauen in Saxony.

Elsewhere in the news, due to financial problems, many real estate constructors ceased works in at least 20 residential places Romania libera reads. 10,000 apartments are affected by this situation and in some cases clients could not recover the money they paid for the unfinished houses.

However the newspaper reads that the real situation might actually be worse than this, due to the lack of transparency from the constructors who wish to minimize their losses in front of their clients. Most clients were not protected by contractual clauses as most of them pay more attention to the financial conditions.

In politics, President Basescu did not allow journalists pertaining to media moguls Vantu and Voiculescu trusts to join the Presidential plane in his visit to the Czech Republic, Cotidianul reads. The main reason put forward was that there is no room in the plane.

This event follows Basescu's public accusations that media moguls Vantu and Voiculescu made a dirty deal with some politicians using public money, referring to ex-Sports minister's case. Journalists from Realitatea Catavencu and Intact media trusts were announced that they will not be able to travel with the Presidential plane.

Antena 1 VicePresident and Antena 3 General Director, Sorin Oancea declared that it is the president's option to allow journalists in the plane or not He added that this is President's Basescu's understanding of the liberty of the press principle. Catavencu Realitatea media trust representatives did not wish to make any comments.
