(Jul 02, 2008) On June 25, 2008, Romania's two parliamentary chambers approved a draft law establishing a NATO intelligence center. The bill, which was passed unanimously, paves the way for a center for human intelligence, which is the gathering of information through personal contacts. The move was encouraged by the President of Romania, Traian Basescu; the project will be given 17.8 million lei (about US$7.5 million). NATO had held a summit in the Romanian capital, Bucharest, in April of 2008.
