THE EVOLUTION OF THE ROMANIAN INTELLIGENCE SERVICES ACTIONS IN PREVENTING AND COMBATING TERRORISM, ORGANIZED CRIME AND CORRUPTION
In Romania, the activity of intelligence collection, analysis and exploitation for providing the national security is regulated in compliance with the Law no. 51/1991 (republished) on National Security of Romania. This law stipulates the actions that represent national security threats specific of terrorism and organized crime, as well as the state bodies with responsibilities in the field of national security.
Romania’s membership within two organizations (NATO and the EU) that play a decisive role in the fight against terrorism constitutes an opportunity which our state uses efficiently so as to achieve its security and defense goals.
Briefly, it may be considered that the current security environment poses new challenges to the state actors and the intelligence bodies, which are completely different from those known so far.
