President Traian Basescu put up a press conference on Friday night, a few hours after the press release referring to the reasons for which he would not accept Norica Nicolai as Justice Minister. Surprisingly, Basescu did not refer mainly to Nicolai, but to the fact that he failed to have a phone conversation with Prime Minister Tariceanu for two days. "I insisted to invite the Prime Minister to see and discuss the professional history of Norica Nicolai. But the thing is that I couldn't reach, with all the efforts, the prime minister. The telecomm system is conceived so it would not fail. The problem is that it could have been a national security issue, or something equally important, and the system failed. This is a problem of national security".
