Both anti-graft prosecutors and public ministries are the main champions in the fight against corruption in Romania, a draft of the EC report reads, quoted by Romanian news agency NewsIn. According to quoted sources, the Romanian Parliament is in the spotlight and heavily criticized for blocking high corruption cases in which former and incumbent ministers Adrian Nastase, Miron Mitrea, Codrut Seres and Paul Pacuraru are investigated. 

Thus, the Parliament is criticized because it postponed a decision involving MPs Nastase and Mitrea until the following fall session. The Parliament is also known to have almost passed through vote the Penal Code amendments highly criticized in the last EC report.

The European Commission does not register enough progress in any of the four reference objectives Romania needs to comply with in its fight against corruption and judicial reform. The cooperation and check up mechanism would be maintained for at least another year, NewsIn reads.

Just like in 2007, the EC report highlights that judges are not objective and cannot face pressures since they constantly rule in favor of politicians involved in high corruption cases. The main conclusions of the report have been confirmed for by Romania's former Justice minister Monica Macovei.

Quoted sources declared that even though Romania lags behind the four reference objectives, it has initiated several projects while Bulgaria has not.
