  • The international arbitration case was launched against Romania in August 2015 with TNG seeking damages for Romania’s ”wrongful attempts to destroy” Romania Libera and the ”wrongful forced bankruptcy” inflicted by the Romanian government on Astra Asigurari. In May 2016, in what is described as an attempt to ”silence” Adamescu, the Romanian government issued an EAW against him.
  • ”Opening the 700 MHz band for mobile internet helps ensure top-quality connectivity throughout Europe and can really transform many people’s lives - let’s think for example of the use of telemedicine in remote areas,” said the rotating Council chair Minister Dr Emmanuel Mallia from Malta. ”It also represents a major step in the industrial shift to 5G, which is essential for the future competitiveness of the EU.”
  • One thing is clear: Europe needs Germany in its unavoidable role on the bridge – and needs it more than ever. This also includes building France’s new President a useful bridge.  To see through his structural reforms at home, he will need a German partner that is prepared to make some corresponding economic moves, too, that Berlin has resisted so far.
  • The outcome of the first round of the presidential elections was predictable, the French voters picking independent candidate Emmanuel Macron, former economy minister and National Front Leader Marine Le Pen to advance to decisive May 7 runoff, French citizens set up a stark choice. They rejected the two political parties that dominated France’s post World War II political life, pitting an anti-immigrant firebrand against an unconventional centrist in a presidential election that could determine the future of the European Union and France’s place in the world.
  • The least educated citizens, who feel left behind by globalisation and are worried about immigration, are most likely to vote for Le Pen, while the better-off, better-educated urban voters will turn to Macron. But the rising star of French politics will have to broaden his appeal beyond the cities if he is to win in a vote where the abstention rate looks set to be high and could therefore be the determining factor in electing France’s new president.
