In an official answer given to the Press Monitoring Agency (AMP) by the Parliament Committee for the Control of the Activity of SRI, signed by democrat-liberal MP Cezar Preda as Committee Chairman, it is stated that ‘under the normative provisions regulating the exercise of the prerogatives of concrete and permanent control of the SRI activity, the Committee can only disclose to the public an activity of examination/verification/investigation carried on if the information accessed or made available is not classified’. The answer came as a reply to AMP’s insistence, unhappy with the first answer of the Committee led by Cezar Preda, on the infiltration of the ‘Jurnalul National’ editorial office. AMP said it had only received an answer to one of its four questions/requests addressed to the Committee and repeated the other three. One of them was about ‘the number of agents/informants infiltrating newsrooms (journalists, auxiliary staff, management)’. What results from the answer provided by the SRI Control Committee is that the information – the number of agents/informants infiltrating editorial offices – is classified. Unions piquet sights all over the country on European Action day today Today, labour unions will piquet sights all over Romania as well as the Government headquarters on the European Action Day. Similar action and general strikes will also be organised in all the member states of the European Union. The ‘Cartel Alfa’ National Trade Union Confederation supports in this way a European action advocating the preservation of jobs and unlocking of collective bargaining. European trade unions have done a survey showing that all the seven EU member states that have an agreement with the IMF in place have implemented the same policies and pursued the same type of solutions – excessive pay and sometimes retirement benefit cuts and aggressive labour market deregulation.
