Romania Risks EU Funds Freeze Over Lingering Corruption
Written by Dániel Antal
Romania could follow Bulgaria by having millions of euros in EU funding frozen after the bloc’s executive issued a critical report Thursday, Feb. 12, suggesting Bucharest was not doing enough to fight corruption - reports the Deutsche Welle.
Although more and more high-level corruption is revealed in Romania, one can not help the feeling that it is always the new government that finds something against its opponents. I still wonder how such and embedded social problem like corruption can be resolved through external pressure.
