The former head of the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) George Maior said on Saturday, for Realitatea TV, that one of the reasons he had resigned was related to “the failure to adopt the legislation on national security and on information.”

George Maior recalled that, even before the completion of presidential elections, he had announced that he will present his mandate to the new head of state, and added that the decision to leave from office is considered practice in some European countries. “On the other hand, there is a certain routine and things have to be changed, it is the philosophy of life,” he said, adding that he feels really good that has done this.

Also, Major wanted to clarify that there were also particular reasons to resign, related to the failure to vote the legislation on national security legislation and on information – the three laws called Big Brother: data protection, prepaid cards and cyber security bill, which were rejected by the Constitutional Court.
