Group of States Against Corruption (GRECO) adopts new report on judicial reforms in Romania

The Group of States Against Corruption (GRECO), a Council of Europe body, has adopted a new report on the judicial reforms in Romania, during its plenary meeting on March 19-23, and encourages Romanian authorities to authorise the publishing of the report as quickly as possible.

GRECO announces that the institution’s president has received instructions to inform Romanian authorities about the conclusions of the report (Greco-AdHocRep(2018)2), and the head of the Romanian delegation is asked to present a written address regarding the status of the judicial reforms, during GRECO’s next plenary meeting (18-22 June 2018), the European institution’s website shows.

At the same time, GRECO invites the authorities to authorise, as soon as possible, the publishing of the recently adopted report.

A delegation of the Group of States Against Corruption (GRECO) visited Romania on February 21-22.

In a report adopted in December 2017, GRECO pointed out that Romania’s current performances in what concerns the implementation of its recommendations in the field of preventing corruption among members of Parliament, judges and prosecutors are “generally unsatisfactory.”
