President Klaus Iohannis conveyed on Sunday a message on International Anti-Corruption Day, saying “Romania will not be able to reach its true potential until we manage to defeat this scourge.”
“Corruption is a disease that eats away at democracy and helds captive millions of people in poverty. Corruption means lack of motorways, insalubrious hospitals, unsafe schools, blocked administration. Romania will not be able to reach its true potential until we manage to defeat this scourge,” President Iohannis conveyed in his message also broadcast in video format.
He added that he stands by all the magistrates who are fighting against corruption in Romania but also that shunning corruption must become from a slogan a way of being.
“I bolster the pursuit of the fight against corruption for a healthy Romania and I will stand by all the magistrates who are carrying on this fight, bravely, day by day. Honesty and integrity must be reinstated at all levels of our society. It is in our power! A definite NO to corruption must become from a slogan a way of being,” the president further affirms, in the message conveyed through social media networks.
