Press relrease

Recently, the Board of Transparency International Romania has become aware – and it is not a first – of a series of disinformation items emerging in the public area, aimed at provoking false attitudes and opinions addressed to people who are striving to do good in this country.

The diversity of opinions cannot and must not generate extremist and undemocratic behaviour that exceeds the limits of truth and reason as well as the standards of an open society.
