In one year, 32 people accused of banking fraud escaped anti-graft inquiries run by the National Anti-Corruption Department (DNA) because their crimes were no longer considered criminal, DNA chief prosecutor Daniel Morar said on Tuesday. That comes as in 2007 the Romanian Parliament voted a law initiated by three Social Democratic (PSD, opposition) deputies which removed from a piece of legislation the crimes reported in delivering and using banking credits.

Among the beneficiaries of the bill - voted by the PSD, the governing Liberals (PNL), the small governing partners from the Hungarian Democrats (UDMR), the far-right Greater Romania Party (PRM) and the Conservative Party one can find Dinel Staicu, the main financial backer of U Craiova football club.

In their argument for the legislative change, PSD deputies Valer Dorneanu, Florin Iordache and Tudor Mohora explained that the changes were aimed at eliminating the possibility of the state to intervene in civilian contracts as the PSD, a Social Democratic Party, was worried about the possibility of the state meddling with client-bank relationship.
