EU report says Victor Ponta government has ‘threatened judges, illegally removed officials and tampered with democratic system’
European authorities have waded into a brutal political feud transfixing Romania, accusing the prime minister, Victor Ponta, of systematic abuse of the country’s constitution and undermining the rule of law in his campaign to unseat the country’s president.
A 22-page report from the European commission highlighting Romania’s failures to observe EU legal standards, obtained by the Guardian before being released on Wednesday, says the Ponta government has ignored the constitution, threatened judges, illegally removed officials from key posts, and tampered with the democratic system of checks and balances in order to try to secure the impeachment of President Traian Basescu.

Romanians who work in Germany and the US sent more money in 2013 than those from Spain, where they are in higher number but are less qualified and worse paid. Workers from Italy ranked first according to BNR head economist Valentin Lazea.
They sent 925 million euro last year, on the rise from 900 million euro in 2012, being followed by those from Germany with 595 million euro (491 million euro in 2012) and from the US with 460 million euro (593 million euro in 2012), according to data presented on Thursday by Lazea at a conference organized by the Romanian Banking Institute.
