The Romanian parliament has adopted a declaration urging president Trajan Basescu to resign due to "grave and irremediable" harm to his "prestige". The move comes after his brother, Mircea, was arrested for peddling influence when he took a €250,000 bribe from a crime boss who wanted his sentence reduced.
