The President of Romania Traian Basescu wrote a letter to the presidents of the Chambers yesterday, demanding that an extraordinary session be summoned so that the Parliament would consent to the opening of lawsuits against Miron Mitrea and Adrian Nastase. The other issue on the agenda would be a revision of the law on which the Court of Accounts functions.
