Borissov has no intention of fighting corruption – Romanian former justice minister

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov has no intention of fighting corruption, according to Romanian MEP Monica Macovei, a former justice minister when that country launched a high-profile campaign against corruption.

Interviewed by local television during a visit to Bulgaria and asked to comment on statements two weeks ago by Borissov that in Romania’s justice system, “nothing happens other than political persecution”, Macovei dismissed the claim as “a lie, a complete lie”.

Romania investigated politicians from all parties and the evidence was presented to the public when cases went to court, she said.
