ABSTRACT
The article reports that members of the European Parliament warned the governments of Rumania and Bulgaria that they will not be able to join the European Union as planned unless they clean up the piracy problems and border controls in their countries. The Parliament's report on Bulgaria urges reforms in the judiciary, police and public administration to tackle the problems. In addition, it calls for a constitutional amendment to provide clearer division of responsibilities in the prosecution and investigation of crime. The report on Romania also focuses on the issues of corruption and border controls.
