Senate speaker heralds stricter access rules for visitors and journalists in Parliament

Parliament will have stricter access rules for visitors and journalists, following the Wednesday’s protest, Senate speaker Calin Popescu Tariceanu announced.

Tariceanu voiced his discontent over the situation in Parliament the other day, arguing that there are probably officials who didn’t do their job to ensure a tighter security.

The Senate speaker announced the access rules would be tougher from now on for visitors, but also for the  journalists reporting from the Parliament, more precisely the cameramen will not be able anymore to get near MPs.

Several #Rezist protesters staged a spontaneous protest down the hall of the Parliament building, during the speech PM Viorica Dancila was delivering in the joint plenary session, and shouted slogans against Liviu Dragnea, the ruling coalition and against corruption.

They sat down on the floor at some point so that bodyguards could not evict them.

PSD chairman Liviu Dragnea and PM Viorica Dancila came out from the plenary session hall under the bodyguards’ protection, preventing protesters from reaching them. Senate speaker Tariceanu stated back then that the protest represents a fascist manifestation, adding „this is how fascism and totalitarianism started in Europe”.
