A delegation of the European Commission is expected in Romania early this week on a mission to assess the latest progress under the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM) that tracks Romania’s progress with judiciary reform, Agerpres informs. The delegation will meet Romanian officials, including Justice Minister Robert Cazanciuc. On November 7, Cazanciuc paid a visit to Brussels to meet Secretary General of the European Commission Catherine Day, with whom he reviewed cooperation under the CVM during the first six months of his term in office. He said back then that the CVM was rated functional so far, yielding results. Early this October, Cazanciuc announced that EU experts in charge with drawing up the progress report on the CVM are expected in Bucharest November 24-27, but the report will only be released in January 2014. The last similar mission to date took place in September 23-27, at expert level.
