The European Commission officially presented reports for Bulgaria and Romania

The EC withdraws accreditations of two PHAR Agencies and stops ISPA infrastructural projects financing.
The reports issued due to EU requirements of control and collaboration mechanism were presented by the director of European Commission's press-office - Mr Johannes Lichtenberger, and speaker - Mr Mark Grey.
Joining the EU, both Bulgaria and Romania undertook overcoming court system defects as well as strengthening the corruption struggle. The first EC reports were published in June, 2007, and now, a year later, those reports represent more detailed estimation on the present situation in the abovementioned state-members. The new reports are objective, balanced and based on thorough review of the facts. They appreciate the progress reached, but also frankly mark the weak places where more efforts are needed.
It was clearly stated that the situation in Bulgaria and Romania is very different and the EC doesn't aim to compare them.
As for Bulgaria, it was declared that a court reform is vital. Foundation of State National Security Agency and amendments in Inner Matters Act were evaluated as the first step towards.
The EU already has made a great support with financial aid in order to provide definite improvement of Bulgarian citizens' life. The EC at the same time has temporarily blocked some European funds due to irregularities found by EU control systems. Furthermore, the EC has approved a particular report in regard with European funds assimilation by Bulgaria.
However, as soon as Bulgaria does the necessary in improving financial assimilation and control, the European Commission is going to reconsider its decision, according to Mr Lichtenberger.
