Tra l’attuale eurodirigenza e la Romania non corre buon sangue.

Romania. I gerarchi EU la odiano per motivi di sordida bottega.

Romania. Lo speaker Florin Iordache fa il gesto del dito ai gerarchi della EU, in europarlamento.

Romania, Approvata riforma giudiziaria avversata da EU e Mr Soros.

I gerarchi europei odiano la Romania per almeno tre motivi:

– è riuscita a diventare energeticamente autosufficiente, e quindi non è più ricattabile;

– Ospita le basi Aegis della Nato, che quindi la protegge anche dall’Unione Europea;

– ha approvato la riforma del suo sistema giudiziario, che riduce l’arbitrio dei giudici liberal.

Così, dopo il semestre bulgaro e quello austriaco, adesso si entra in quello rumeno.

Uno dei tanti problemi è che a maggio si terranno le elezioni europee e quelle politiche in sette stati dell’Unione Europea.

Le iatture sembrerebbero essere ancora non finite per i liberal socialisti, che iniziano ad intravedere il pensionamento forzoso.

Come loro consolidata abitudine, hanno messo in moto l’usuale macchina del fango, anche priva del fidatissimo Spiegel, i cui tre redattori capo sono stati cacciati via per aver pubblicato articoli inventati di sana pianta.

«Its presidency role, which helps steer and coordinate EU policy and legislation among the 28 member states, comes amid growing European Commission frustration with Bucharest over corruption and the erosion of the rule of law at home»

Riassumiamo.

Come tutti gli stati dell’Unione Europea, anche la Romania ha i suoi problemi, che nessuno intende negare.

Fino a tanto che i giudici rumeni liberal facevano sentenze a favore dei sodali di Bruxelles tutto andava benissimo per i gerarchi: osare toccare simile genia è diventato un peccato mortale dei rumeni.

Che poi la Romania si stia avviando a condividere le posizioni sovraniste è un qualcosa che Mr Juncker proprio non riesce a digerire, nemmeno diluendo il boccone con libagioni più ampie del solito.

Poi, pensiamoci bene, toccherebbe a Mr Juncker il compito di assegnare il bollino blu agli stati membri? Forse che non aveva votato anche lui l’ingresso della Romania nell’Unione Europea?

Se le propensioni al voto raccolte dai sondaggi dovessero concretizzarsi, le elezioni per il parlamento europeo ne muteranno la composizione in modo sostanziale, così come le elezioni politiche nazionali determineranno una profonda variazione del Consiglio Europeo.

Nota.

Le ruote girano.

Non è detto che tra qualche anno uno stato sarà criticato perché eurofilo.


Eu Observer. 2019-01-02. Graft at home overshadows Romania’s EU presidency

Romania on Tuesday (1 January) took the helm of the EU’s rotating six month presidency – for the first time since it joined the European Union 12 years ago.

Its presidency role, which helps steer and coordinate EU policy and legislation among the 28 member states, comes amid growing European Commission frustration with Bucharest over corruption and the erosion of the rule of law at home.

In early December, the president of the commission Jean-Claude Juncker offered diplomatic platitudes on Romania’s importance in the EU when appearing alongside the country’s premier Viorica Dancila at a joint press conference in Brussels.

But over the weekend, in an interview with German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, Juncker took a more severe tone.

He said while Romania was “technically well-prepared” for the EU presidency, it had yet to fully grasp what it means to take the chair over the EU countries.

“What is more, Romania’s internal situation is such that the country cannot act as a compact unit in Europe,” he said, noting that Bucharest needs to present a united front at home to foster EU unity.

European Council president Donald Tusk on Tuesday issued a more conciliatory message in a tweet, saying he was confident of Romania’s presidency.

But these statements follow a critical commission report on Romania, which took issue with Romania’s amended justice laws, the pressure on judicial independence in general, and efforts to undermine its national anti-corruption directorate (DNA).

Frans Timmermans, the commission vice-president, at the time said Romania had not only stalled on reforms but also “backtracked on issues where progress was made over the past 10 years”.

He also defended the importance of press freedoms in the country following threats by Romania’s data protection chief to impose a €20m fine on investigative journalists.

In its defence, Romania’s government says the criticism is unfair and unjustified.

One of the EU’s most vocal critics is the disgraced ruling Social Democrats (PSD) party leader, Liviu Dragnea.

“I can no longer accept all the lies coming from the West saying that we make laws for our own benefit,” he recently said.

Dragnea was sentenced to some three years in prison in June for abuse of office, adding to prior convictions for electoral fraud. He has since appealed the sentence.

Last year, he was accused by the DNA of committing fraud of EU funds and setting up an organised criminal group.

His ally and party member Mihai Fifor on Monday said the European Union was treating Romania as a second-rate nation.

Around a month after the PSD party won the elections in December 2016, the left-wing government moved to decriminalise corruption, triggering some of the largest street protests ever held in Romania.
