BUCHAREST (Reuters) - Romania’s justice ministry scrapped plans for a bill on changing the criminal code, Digi24 TV said on Monday, after days of mass protests against a decree on graft forced the governement to drop its own plans to decriminalise some graft cases.
“The ministry is not seeking to draft a bill to change and amend law No. 286/2009 regarding the criminal code and the law No. 135/2010 regarding the criminal procedure code,” the ministry said in a statement, according to Digi24 TV.
