On 3rd of September, the Romanian Parliament is going back to work. However, the parliamentarians of the Carpatian country have not been idle during the summer break: the members of the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate had to decide in extracurricular sessions on 13th and 16th of August, whether they will withdraw the immunity of four current and former ministers, thus enabling criminal law investigation on suspicion of high-ranking corruption.

For further details on the decisions and reactions, please take a look at the entire Country Report (available in German only) here.
