The Council of Europe’s anti-corruption body GRECO expressed concern over the use of emergency ordinances in Romania to amend laws instead of the normal parliamentary process, according to a report published yesterday.
The report assesses Romania’s progress in the implementation of the previous recommendations made by GRECO on corruption and transparency.
GRECO reminds the Romanian officials to take into account the commitments Romania has made in fighting corruption.
The report states that Romania has managed to implement 15 of the 20 recommendations GRECO made in the first report of this type, adopted in 2010. Two recommendations haven’t been implemented and three have been partially addressed.
