Thousands of people rallied in freezing weather across Romania on Sunday, in support for the country's chief anti-corruption prosecutor. Romania's justice minister has called for Laura Codruta Kovesi to be sacked for exceeding her authority. But under her watch at the DNA anti-corruption agency graft convictions have risen winning her praise from Brussels.
"This is a popular revolt and we want the resignation of our minister of justice, Tudorel Toader. He is lying, he is always lying," said one young woman.
