Romanians Protest After Government Repeals Corruption Laws


More than 10,000 Romanians protested outside the main government buildings in Bucharest after an emergency decree was announced which decriminalized a number of offenses relating to corruption and abuse of power. The protesters gathered in sub-zero temperatures on January 31, calling for the government to resign. The new rules decriminalize offenses involving less than 200,000 lei ($48,000). (Reuters)
