Romanian Draft Constitution: Wealth No Longer Presumed Obtained Legally

Article 44 of the current Constitution, concerning "the right to private property" states (section 8): "Legally-obtained wealth may not be confiscated. Wealth is presumed to have been obtained legally."

The draft revision eliminates the final part of the section, to read: "Legally-obtained wealth may not be confiscated."

The revised text and a table comparing the current Constitution with the draft have been published on the Presidential Administration's website: www.presidency.ro
