National Press Review, 18 November

Articol de Mirela Ursachi, 18 Noiembrie 2011, 15:27

Some of the news in the press today inform us on the results of the investigation in fuel prices, what were the causes for not closing the Romanian- Syrian treaty and the putting up for auction the houses of dignitaries.

“Fuel pump robbery, to be decided by Cartel”, the first page in the Adevărul writes.

The newspaper brings exclusive details on the results of fuel market investigation and lists the examined companies.

The investigators propose the anti-competitive practice, but the final decision is to be taken by the Competition Council plenary, after all parts have been examined - the article writes.

The issue is also approached by the România Liberă.

Under the headline “European Commission gives green light: fine gas stations”, the newspaper details what sanctions can be given to companies in sight and makes a short listing of how the fuel prices have been increased in the past years.

The România Liberă also writes: “Political Consensus on Omar Hayssam case”, and explains: both Government and Opposition ministers confront the implementation of Romanian- Syrian treaties, seeing the attitude of the European Union towards the Syrian regime's practices.

The author of the article offers details in regards to what the extradition and prison transfer treaties presuppose and points out why is the Senate Committee for Foreign Relations waiting for the Bucharest Government to take charge of its actions.

The Evenimentul Zilei headlines “Problematic mayors of big cities”.

The daily paper explains that the majority of mayors who are under non-custodial interrogation have come back to their jobs until the final decision is made, and provides a list of them and their charges.

“State auctions dignitaries’ houses”, the Jurnalul Naţional writes, mentioning that the houses of ex presidents are not included. The newspaper reveals what houses are on the list of the Self-governing Department for Administration of the State Heritage and Protocol (RA-APPS), but also how the auction takes place.

The same issue also discussed in the Curierul Naţional, which mentions the auction reasons.

In addition, real estate specialists think that the auctioning is ill-timed, due to the economic downturn.
