Bucharest.

Romanian Justice Minister Catalin Predoiu said Tuesday he is not very optimistic about the European Commission’s interim report on Romania’s progress in the justice sector saying some reforms have stalled because of intense political turmoil in the country, Romanian Mediafax news agency reports.

Speaking at a meeting with law students in Targu Mures, central Romania, Predoiu said the EC’s most recent report, of June 2009, has recognized some progress and an interim report is expected in about two weeks. However, Predoiu said he is not optimistic about this upcoming report because justice reform in Romania has stalled over the past six months because of political turmoil surrounding the presidential election in December.

„Over the last six months, especially because of political turmoil, institutional and constitutional difficulties, a series of measures have been stalled and we are behind on reform,” Predoiu said, adding one of the stalled reforms in the adoption of the country’s criminal and civil procedure codes.

EU experts were in Romania in January to assess the country’s progress within the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism and a report by the European Commission is expected in February.
