Romania's official entrance in the Schengen area and the Euro zone might be postponed if its fight against corruption fails to deliver the expected results, a draft of the July European Commission justice report warns. European officials consider that Romania's fight against corruption registered poor results, low progress which impose unlimited extension of the supervising mechanism, Romanian news agency NewsIn informs. 

Thus, the European executive considers that for the moment no safeguarding sanctions will be launched against Romania. However, the report warns that measures will be taken if the fight against corruption does not deliver the expected results.

Prosecutors are encouraged to continue their battle while MPs and judges are urged to support them. European officials underline the progress achieved by prosecutors within the system. Nonetheless, the report warns that prosecutors stumble upon judges and parliamentarians who block high corruption cases.

As compared to the January report, the new document registers more positive signals. European officials thus declare that Romania is on the good track so far. Even if the document concludes that no safeguarding procedure will be launched against Romania, the supervising mechanism will be maintained for an unlimited period. Plus, Romanians might fail to join the Schengen area or Euro zone if their fight against corruption does not offer valid results.
