Justice Minister Mona Pivniceru said on Wednesday the Government had adopted a memorandum for the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM), which indicates the ways and lines of actions Romania will take or suggest in relation with the European Commission.
Pivniceru complained about the instability of conditions in the various CVM reports. ‘We don’t know the steps that need to be taken. Every new report has added further recommendations to the Romanian state. Conditions other than those stipulated in the original mechanism have been added in the process’, Mona Pivniceru said at Victoria Palace, after the Cabinet meeting. The official also said Romania had had a reactive response rather than a pro-active approach. Contacted by Mediafax, the European Commission says it has taken note of the memorandum on the CVM in the area of justice of the Government of Romania, mentioning, however, that the latest report was the result of a careful, fair and impartial assessment, being also hailed by the EU Council where Romania is represented.
