Netherlands to offer Romania expertise on anticorruption strategy

The Dutch Embassy in Bucharest announced yesterday that the Dutch government will support Romania with expertise in applying the new codes and the anticorruption strategy, Mediafax informs. The decision was taken following General Attorney Herman Bolhaar’s visit in Bucharest. Likewise, the Dutch delegation led by General Attorney Bolhaar, a delegation that included Dutch Police and Public Ministry representatives, agreed with Romanian General Attorney Laura Codruta Kovesi and with Romanian Police representatives to intensify their cooperation. This cooperation will centre on the joint combating of human trafficking, of organized crime and of IT crimes. “The Romanian and Dutch judiciaries have consented to continue to enhance and consolidate their cooperation. This is a positive thing for the Romanian and Dutch citizens and for European integration,” Ambassador Matthijs Van Bonzel stated. In other developments, Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean stated on Wednesday on Realitatea TV that despite the fact that it had fulfilled the accession criteria, Romania was not allowed to join the Schengen Area in 2011 because of political considerations, so that with or without the referendum the goal would have been difficult to attain this year too. At the same time, Titus Corlatean added that Netherlands’s position on that issue has not changed.
