Pre-pay cards only with ID


The persons that own pre-pay cards will have to register them with their IDs or else they risk losing the ability to use them, while the persons that want to buy pre-pay cards will have to present their IDs to do so. The rule will be applied in the case of companies too, which will have to present the documents through which they were set up. The new rules were approved by the government through a draft law and will be applied after Parliament adopts it. The persons that own pre-pay cards will have a six-month period in which they can register them. The draft law modifies emergency ordinance 111/2011 concerning electronic communications. According to Justice Minister Robert Cazanciuc, during the latest Supreme Defense Council (CSAT) meeting it was decided to urgently promote a draft law on the prevention and countering of national security risks. He pointed out that all the owners of pre-pay cards will have to register them with their IDs within six months after the law comes into force. If they fail to do so their mobile phone operator will stop offering its services until the owners of the pre-pay cards register them with their IDs. Those offering mobile phone services will have the obligation to inform and notify all pre-pay card users.
