The nine members in the board of the National Bank of Romania (BNR) will go to the Parliament on February 12 at the invitation of two Senate committees, BNR governor Mugur Isarescu said on Thursday.

The central bank has rejected two previous invitations on formal reasons.

“We finally received a valid invitation,” Isarescu said in a press briefing.

The NBR board has been invited by a controversial senator Daniel Zamfir, known as an adversary of banks and of the central bank.

Zamfir has proposed a draft bill making the members of the board of the central bank liable to criminal prosecution, despite EU rules ensuring the independence of the central banks.

The new draft law eliminates the rule that said that the members of the board of the central bank are not liable to civil or criminal investigations in the event that the court rules that they have omitted to carry out any act related to the exercise of prudential supervision.
