Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dancila criticised the leaders of some EU member states and accused the bloc of having “double standards”.
According to the PM, the EU applies double standards regarding corruption in Europe, as it hits out at Romania for this and the suppression of demonstrations, but avoids mentioning cases of bribery flourishing in Western member states.
“It’s said that this mechanism is meant to help Romania and Bulgaria,” PM Dancila said. “It talks about corruption. I’ve seen very big acts of corruption also in Holland, I saw them in France, I saw them in Germany. No one ever asked for the introduction of such a mechanism.”
