Admittedly I'm not that informed aboout Romanian politics, but wasn't the thing Romanians protested a corruption amnesty law that's been introduced? I had not heard that the Romanian social-democrat coalition they elected last year had implemented any authoritarian stuff like the conservatives in Poland or Hungary, "just" the corruption stuff. Partly I think because the conservative president from the opposition had rejected their first choice of prime minister saying he would not ask any body with legal trouble to form a government. So they had to go with different personnel iirc.

I mean it's somewhat appalling and a really transparent self-service considering their party leader is accused of corruption damage just below the newly proposed threshold of about 44000€, but considering the usual corruption damage you see in the news he doesn't seem to be in the big leagues.
