The Supreme Court of Cassation and Justice announced the judgment and will evaluate the new land-based gambling restrictions which aim to reform Romania’s Criminal Code.

To change Romania’s Criminal Code, the Supreme Court has mandated a ‘constitutional review’ of the measure, prohibiting gambling in towns with fewer than 15,000 registered inhabitants.

In April, PM Ciolacu authorised the executive order of the ‘Legea Păcănelelor’ (The Pannel Law), which Parliament approved to enforce the headline measure.
