Romania: Protesters in Romania hold huge demonstration over government 'anti-corruption U-turn'

Protesters in Bucharest have condemned a government decision to decriminalise some misconduct offences, in one of the biggest demonstrations since the 1989 revolution.

Tens of thousands of angry Romanians claim the passing of an emergency decree on Tuesday will allow corrupt politicians to escape justice.

The change in the law will decriminalises official misconduct in cases where the financial damage is less than 200,000 lei (44,000 euros).

“It’s an incredible manifestation of disappointment from these people who feel that they have been cheated. They have been deceived by the government. This Socialist government came to power only one month ago and in one month they managed to have 100.000 people unprecedented since the revolution on the streets against it.”
