Romania's justice minister claimed on 12 January 2017 that the country had filled the requirements for the European Commission to lift its monitoring scheme over its judicial system, the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism.

However, the European Commission's deputy secretary-general was quick to counter the suggestion that Romania would be able to escape the CVM in 2017. The EU official announced the presentation of the report for 2016 and the agreement over continued cooperation.
