Romania minister prepares decree to quash graft cases

Romania’s justice minister has drafted an emergency decree that allows politicians and others convicted of graft since 2014 to challenge the verdicts handed down by the supreme court. The measure would benefit several high-level politicians. The move is the latest in a series of steps threatening judicial independence. Transparency International ranks Romania among the EU’s most corrupt states.
