Progress Report on Fiscal Policies, October 17- 24, 2016
Last week came with new corruption charges, this time targeting high-ranking officials within the Finance Ministry and the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF). On Friday, October 21, Mariana Vizoli, Secretary of State with the Ministry of Finance, and Daniel Diaconescu, the chief of the Anti-Fraud Department within Romania’s Tax Agency (ANAF) resigned after the National Anticorruption Department (DNA) placed them under judicial control in the EUR 132 million worth “Murfatlar” tax evasion case. Anti-corruption prosecutors placed Mariana Vizoli and Daniel Diaconescu under judicial control for 60 days, starting October 20. The same measure was applied in the case of three other directors from the Ministry of Finance and ANAF, all of whom are charged with abuse of office.

Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, October 12-19, 2016
Last week, PSD and PNL released their political agenda for this year’s general elections. Both platforms were equally criticized by the president of the Fiscal Council, Ionuț Dumitru. His criticism prompted a reaction from PSD’s Liviu Dragnea, who accused members of the Fiscal Council of being accomplices to decisions taken by former Prime Minister Emil Boc with regards to cutting wages and raising the VAT, although - as Dumitru explained - the Council was not active at that time. This week, despite criticism coming from experts and from the Government, the draft bill initiated by PSD, aiming to eliminate 102 non-fiscal taxes, passed at a record speed through the Senate. In less than a week, the draft bill went from the Standing Bureau straight to the Plenum of the first notified Chamber, after a 20-minute debate in the Reporting Committee.

Progress Report on the Priorities of the European Commission, October 5 - 12, 2016
Members of the Cioloș Cabinet have been under the scrutiny of political parties over the past weeks, and future challenges to their legitimacy are to be expected, especially given the electoral context. This week, PSD demanded JusMin Raluca Prună's after the Minister stated that she had unknowingly lied to the European Court of Human Rights (CEDO) when she said that Romania has the necessary funds for its penitentiary infrastructure. The Social Democrats filed a simple motion against Prună after the statement made by the Justice Ministry at the Supreme Council of Magistracy (CSM). However, the Plenary Sitting of the Chamber of Deputies was suspended due to lack of quorum, which prompted reactions from both PSD and PNL, which accused each other of having boycotted the vote.
