Bulgarian Deputy PM: Romania will be assessed more positively than Bulgaria in the CVM report

Romania will be assessed more positively than Bulgaria in a EU Commission report on justice and internal affairs, Bulgarian Deputy PM Ekaterina Zaharieva has said on Saturday, according to Novinite.com.

In an interview with the Bulgarian National Radio, she has admitted Bucharest has performed far better than Bulgaria over the past year with regard to court cases of public interest, high-level corruption, the fight against organized crime.

The report on Bulgaria is expected alongside the one on Romania on January 27.

“What they [the EU] expect from us are results on concrete cases… We spoke more about the independence of the judiciary… We have spoken about the [changes to the] constitution being a good step toward independence, but much more important steps are still ahead, and it is the changes to the law on the judiciary which will guarantee this independence,” Zaharieva has said after meeting EU officials in Brussels.
