Romania has two months to modify the legislation of the Communications ministry, to levy some incongruent competences: at the time, the ministry has both regulatory power of the communications market and has property rights of market operators like Romtelecom and Radiocom. If it fails to remedy the situation, Romania faces the European Court of Justice, the European Commission announced on Thursday. For this problem, the European legislative opened up an infringement procedure against Romania in October last year but Romanian authorities failed to take appropriate actions.

A good news in the announcement was that the European executive decided to close another infringement procedre against Romania, opened in January 2009 due to lack of independence of the national regulatory agency due to the lay off of its President, Dan Georgescu in 2008.

Romania's Parliament adopted a new judicial framework to consolidate the independence of the authorit, the EC reads. Romania is not the only country in the EU that has problems respecting community regulations in telecommunications.
