    At its meeting on Tuesday, the Romanian Senate has continued the debates about the draft law on preventing and sanctioning corruption. The senators have adopted 26 of the 38 articles in the law, and decided to send the article 27 back to the Legal Commission for review as, in their opinion, the provisions in article 27 might lead to human rights abuses. The initial version allows the prosecutor or the court to decide a 30-day period of bank account monitoring, listening in to phone calls and access to information systems in order to provide evidence or detect criminals. If the court believes it is necessary, the 30-day period may be extended. RADOR
