Judiciary may put end to Roşia Montană

A special commission of the Romanian parliament on Monday rejected the controversial draft law on gold mining in Roşia Montană. The final report was also submitted to the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA), which online newspaper Gândul finds a good idea: "All the violations of the law published in the mass media have been officially documented and have now landed on the DNA's desk. This is the main achievement of the special parliamentary commission. The list of high-ranking dignitaries who travelled round the globe sponsored by [mining company] RMGC will be enough to keep the public prosecutors busy for now. If only a few of the accusations are confirmed, the Roşia Montană mining project won't be allowed to begin in its present form because it is based on corruption. So our rescue from the Roşia Montană project could come through the justice system, where the project wouldn't have landed so quickly without the unusual street protests."
