BUCHAREST: Thousands of people are expected to attend an anti-corruption march in the Romanian capital of Bucharest later today.

You can watch updates from Euronews’ Hans Von der Brelie below as he talks to protesters in and around the city, ahead of the demonstration.

Protesters are upset about government moves that they say will put the justice system partially under political control.

The legislation has been passed by Romanian MPs and is currently with President Klaus Iohannis for approval.

Protesters are also against moves to decriminalise some lower-level corruption offences – a battle that has been going on for a year.__EuroNews
