Prompt reaction of the British Embassy to the Parliament’s vote in Ponta case

‘The Government of Great Britain recognises the importance of the fight against corruption in Romania and the need for the institutions belonging to the judicial system to be able to act impartially and in the spirit of full independence. This principle is, in fact, also noted in the European Commission’s reports on the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism in the area of Justice, documents that emphasise the important role of Parliament in this conjugated effort. Ahead of the G7 Summit in Germany, British Prime-Minister David Cameron warned about corruption as a threat against states’ prosperity and security anywhere in the world. PM Cameron announced the UK would coordinate an anti-graft agenda next year, culminating with a summit dedicated to the fight on corruption to be hosted by London in 2016. The Embassy of the United Kingdom does not comment on individual cases and the situations that concern the Government of Romania are a subject to be managed by the citizens of Romania’, a release of the British Embassy in Bucharest states.
