Sweden Embassy: We hope Romanian gov’t will reconsider decision weakening legislation to prosecute abuse of office

Sweden firmly supports Romania in its fight against corruption and hopes that the Romanian government will reconsider its recent decision that “weakens the legislation to prosecute abuse of office,” reads a statement published on the official Facebook page of the Swedish diplomatic mission in Bucharest.

“Sweden firmly supports Romania in its fight against corruption. The last years, Romania has made important progress in this area. This has been recognized internationally and in recent CVM reports of the EU Commission,” the Embassy underscores.

At the same time, the Swedish Embassy in Bucharest voices concern with the recent changes in the Justice area.

“The Swedish Embassy is, like many other friends of Romania, concerned that this positive development will be reversed. We are hoping that the Romanian government will reconsider its recent decision that weakens the legislation to prosecute abuse of office,” the Swedish Embassy in Bucharest adds.
