Emancipation of justice in Romania continues

Romania's most influential politician and media mogul Dan Voiculescu was sentenced to ten years in prison for money laundering on Friday. This is the harshest sentence a dignitary has ever been given in the country. Author Radu Alexandru expresses his delight at this victory for justice on the blog of the liberal-conservative daily Adevărul. "The victory doesn't consist in the harshness of the sentence, but in that the judiciary fought its battle against the oligarch Dan Voiculescu - its most bitter opponent in the past 25 years - to the end. Let us look at the long list of people who have been brought to book: a prime minister, several ministers, parliamentarians, media moguls. But none had as much political and financial power and such great influence on the media as Dan Voiculescu. … Dan Voiculescu was the first Romanian oligarch who stopped at nothing to prevent justice from being carried out. Now he's history. Notorious, ugly history."
