Govt to withdraw corruption decree after mass protests
The Romanian government has announced its decision to withdraw some decrees that will free some corrupt public officials.
The Romanian government recently made this known in a statement by the Prime Minister on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
For some days, tens of thousands of Romanians have been holding daily protests against the decree, which would have seen convicted officials released from prison.
Meanwhile, the EU had warned Romania against undoing progress against corruption.
