Geoana: Education law package on government table in the next few days


The president of the Social-Democrat Party (PSD), Mircea Geoana, yesterday announced that the minister of Education, Research and Innovation, Ecaterina Andronescu, will conclude in the coming days the law package on education, Agerpres reported.


‘Ecaterina Andronescu is working on that package of education laws and in the upcoming days she will come with a final form that we will put before government,’ Mircea Geoana said after the party leadership’s weekly session.


The PSD outlined that Social-Democrats don’t agree with Government taking responsibility in Parliament for this law package, given the PSD-PD-L coalition has a legislative majority of 70 per cent.


Israeli doctors from Sabyc clinic to remain free


The Bucharest Tribunal magistrates have freed Israeli doctors Natan Lewit and Genia Ziskind, arguing that the two did not know that the Romanian egg donors were receiving money and that the prosecutors failed to bring new evidence that would have justified their arrest, Agerpres informs. The two doctors were involved in trafficking human eggs within the Sabyc clinic. ‘The talks that Harry Mironescu (the head of the Sabyc clinic – editor’s note) took part in on July 24, 2009 do not clearly show that the two defendants – Natan Lewin and Genia Ziskind – knew that the donors were paid,’ reads the court ruling published on Monday.


The judges state that after July 20, the date on which the two doctors were prevented from leaving the country, the prosecutors did not bring new evidence that would justify the arrest of Natan Lewit and Genia Ziskind. On July 29 the Bucharest Tribunal has rejected the DIICOT prosecutors’ request to issue preventive arrest warrants for the two Israeli doctors involved in the trafficking of human eggs within the Sabyc clinic. DIITCOT filed an appeal set to be judged on August 6 within the Bucharest Court of Appeal.

Inflation – the main obstacle for Romania’s accession to the euro zoneM


Inflation might become the main obstacle for Romania’s adoption of the European currency at the initially planned term, because it is a process hard to control by the state in the conditions of the present economic crisis and of the years that will follow, as many companies that operate on the Romanian market will be tempted to compensate the sales decline by putting pressure upon prices, writes a press release issued by X-Trade Brokers Romania. Victor Safta, the head of Romania’s branch of X-Trade Brokers, explained: “The only industries that announce substantial price cuts are – unfortunately – those which experienced dramatic decreases of sales volumes, so their weight in the inflation index is insignificant: the car industry and the real estate sector, respectively.”


Romania absorbed only 1 pc of European funds


More than two years after joining the EU, Romania is still unable to absorb European funds, ‘Gandul’ daily shows. From 2007 and until mid-2009 Romania used only 1 per cent of the total funds of EUR 30 bln earmarked for it for the 2007-2013 period. That percentage amounts to a figure of EUR 300 M. When one looks strictly at the funds earmarked for the 2007-2009 period the absorption rate grows to 5 per cent, which means that Romania theoretically has half a year left to at least draw in, if not absorb, the 95 per cent left. Until now the total value of approved projects that can receive EU funds stands at approximately EUR 3.66 bln. In order to benefit from EU funds the Romanian state however is forced to cover a part of the projects’ costs.


But in the first six months of this year the state earmarked only EUR 275 M for the co-financing of these projects, namely 15 per cent of the annual funds earmarked by the Government for that purpose.

He has been a producer, editor and presenter of The Money Channel since the start of this TV channel, in 2006.
