Romania's PM to speak as pressure mounts over graft decree

BUCHAREST, Feb 4 (Reuters) - Romanian Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu will make a statement at 1820 GMT on Saturday, his press office said, as some 70,000 people gathered to protest at a decree that decriminalises some graft offences.

The leader of Grindeanu’s Social Democrats (PSD) said earlier on Saturday the government might withdraw the decree. (Reporting by Radu Marinas; Editing by Robin Pomeroy)
