Today's Quote: Monica Macovei
''The words of your Prime Minister that there is no real attempt to fight corruption in Romania while the arrests of high level politicians are merely related to conflicting political affiliations, are a bad sign,'' stated Monica Macovei, former Romanian Justice Minister and current MEP from the European People's Party. ''These words merely mean that Boiko Borisov has no intention of leading a real war on corruption. Politicians need to be investigated.''
She arrived in Sofia Monday morning to take part in a discussion on anti-corruption policies.
''There are threats and what not, but there need to be people with firm positions - both prosecutors and judges,'' Macovei answered after being asked a question on the dangers that such policies could pose.
She added that politicians have been investigated regardless of their political affiliations, including people close to governing figures.
''Do you have a politician in Bulgaria who is willing to do something about this? They asked me if I would agree to become a Justice Minister in Bulgaria, and I said ''Yes'', but nobody came looking for me. Nobody wants to fight corruption practices, because politicians will become the victims.''

Remember discussion Sova-Hrebenciuc, which led to custody? Well if anyone gives law is favorable to them, as before, to seize the institution not to check, what happens?
Without these laws if we had 'Stelu' (No - Stelian Gheorghe) and all. For that first it was not Proprietatea Fund, to compensate and give them greater compensation. If before posing a share, it now gives freely, "continued Eugene Nicolicea.
UNPR MP also said that we will believe in the judicial process when you see Monica Macovei investigated for two packages of laws.
"I will believe that justice does its job really when you see Monica Macovei packages surveyed for the restitution law and justice and robbery on Romania by means of laws made it", said Eugen Nicolicea.

Minister for Relations with Parliament, Eugen Nicolicea, launching a series of serious accusations Monica Macovei, the full restitution mafia scandals. MEP Monica Macovei says UNPR was a lawyer who dealt retrocession recoveries and laws of justice minister during data were only to cover the package of laws on the properties.
Simultaneous package of laws - Justice and properties
"After he left the GPO, Monica Macovei was a lawyer and deals with retrocession recoveries. But at that time the legislation does not allow too many retrocession. And Mrs Macovei, the Minister lawyer arrives. And in 2005, at the beginning of the legislature, the Alliance YES, Minister Macovei, started and made a package of property and other justice.
Then I sat and I thought I was the only one to speak about the package of laws with the property. And I said that those issues will be restitution: that, for example, in Transylvania a lot of public institutions, kindergartens, hospitals, etc. They will be returned, and the Romanian state will be robbed. What will be robbed? If a kindergarten were giving out, that restitute the state or should consume cash to spend another or had to pay a rent. So it was an additional expense that I did not have a plan. And I also have said then: if this thing were not, we enter into crisis even with something to sell, "said Eugen Nicolicea us.
Justice Laws, a cover for restitution
UNPR MP said that the package of laws which aimed "judicial reform" was just a cover to ensure "optimal operation" property laws.
"More than that. The laws of justice were once the smoke, lest anyone see property laws. I was about the only voice that I yelled at that time. Everyone rushed to the laws of justice and there was smoke curtain who nominates the Attorney General and the Attorney DNA. Of course he did Macovei proposal. So the combination was you could steal those institutions to protect you, you know you do not mind.
