Balkans.com Business News Correspondent - 07.03.2013 - Finland says it will block Romanian and Bulgar bids to join the passport-free Schengen travel zone ahead of a meeting of EU Interior ministers on Thursday,

Both government and parliament said the two countries are too corrupt and fail to live up to the rule of law, a precondition for accession. Finland’s objection is backed up by fellow Schengen member Germany.

Interior minister Päivi Räsänen rejected claims that Finland’s stance is related to the problem of eastern European Roma beggars arriving in Finnish cities. Räsänen said Romania and Bulgaria were too easily allowed into the 27-member bloc in the first place.

"Too many questions were left unanswered which we now have to deal with," she said.
