The Law on the National Integrity Agency (ANI) should be drawn up as to meet Romania's commitments, and the decision of the Constitutional Court of Romania (CCR) has generated to conditions to this end, Romania's President Traian Basescu said on Tuesday following the release of a report on Romania's progress with judicial reform drawn up by the European Commission.

In relation to the mention in the EC report that 'the new ANI law seriously undermines the process for effective verification, sanctioning and forfeiture of unjustified assets,' the President said this is justifiably tough.

'The decision on Monday of the CCR has generated certain conditions. The ANI law should be drawn up to help Romania meet its commitments to allow the public and the State to see what happens to the assets of dignitaries,' said Basescu.
