Romania parliament changes criminal procedure; opposition says aims to hide graft

BUnited StateswitzerlandArgentinaSpainT (Reuters) – RO’s lower house of parliament on Monday night approved amendments to the country’s criminal procedure, which critics and the centrist opposition say would weaken prosecutors’ powers to probe high level corruption. Opposition groups say they plan to challenge it at the constitutional court. Under the bill, courts of appeals would be barred from convicting a person found innocent by a lower court, unless new evidence is brought by prosecutors. Wire tapping that is not connected with the criminal deed by a person under investigation will no longer be taken into account. The changes also set a maximum length for a criminal investigations to 1 year, which critics have said would effectively kill the country’s tangled web of graft cases.

The number of people caught trying to enter the EU illegally has fallen to its lowest level in 5 years, the bloc’s border agency says.

Anti-corruption prosecutors have secured a spate of convictions against lawmakers, ministers and mayors in recent years, exposing conflicts of interest, abuse of power, fraud and the awarding of state contracts in exchange for bribes. But leading politicians, some of whom are currently under investigation or on trial, have denied wrongdoing and accused prosecutors of using their powers for political persecution. Social Democrat leader Liviu Dragnea is barred from becoming prime minister due to a prior sentence in a vote-rigging case.

Frontex says this discrepancy is due to the fact that they cover all of the EU’s external land borders whereas the UN primarily measure sea borders. The dramatic fall in the number of migrants attempting to take the central Mediterranean route to IT follows the election of a populist government that has taken a hardline stance on immigration. The government, a coalition between the right-wing League party and the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, came to power in June.

It has pursued a number of measures to prevent rescued migrants from landing on its shores. In September, it passed a bill that was intended to make it easier to deport migrants and strip them of Italian citizenship. Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has also frequently come into conflict with migrant rescue ship operators and has banned these ships from docking at Italian ports.

Italian policy is that migrants picked up at sea should be returned to LY by that country’s coastguard. But charities and human rights groups say migrants face appalling conditions in LY, where abuse at the hands of people-trafficking gangs are rife. Officials have also warned that those crossing the Mediterranean face a more dangerous journey than ever before.

In September, UNew HampshireCosta Rica said that while the number of people arriving in Europe had fallen, the number of deaths had risen sharply. “The reason the traffic has become more deadly is that the traffickers are taking more risks, because there is more surveillance exercised by the LYn coastguards,” Vincent Cochetel, UNew HampshireCosta Rica’s special envoy for the central Mediterranean, said at the time.
