Quite some things are going on in Romania today.
First of all, Mr. Basescu refuses to go to Bruxelles in the same plane as Iliescu, following Iliescu's decision to set Cosma free. Instead, Basescu flies to Bruxelles with a TAROM plane.
But this is nothing. Just look what follows:
While in Bruxelles, mr. Iliescu decides to RETREAT the decrete he gave yesterday about setting Cosma free, and he says he will dismiss it for now and think about it later. But he doesn't publish yet (he's in Bruxelles) this retreat order in Monitorul Oficial. Still, the Police in Timisoara arrests Cosma (what for? he is, for now, a free man...).
In the same time, Mr. Voiculescu (leader of the PUR Party) and Mr. Marko Bela (leader of UDMR party) say they reached the conclusion to form an alliance with D.A. So PSD is "left outside alone".
Well, this is it for now. But there are some bad things that can happen:
1. First of all, all this politics up and down is looking quite bad in International Press. Mr. Iliescu managed, in 2 days, to make Romania look not only irresponsable but also chaotic.
2. Second, if Mr. Cosma now is arrested without any legal paper behind this, he can afterwards attack this decision in the Court of Law and WIN! And the entire process of retreating the freeing order mr. Iliescu did today will have no value.
Hopefully, all this will turn out well.
