Romania PM charged with corruption

Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta has been charged with three counts of corruption in a long-running investigation, prosecutors say.

He faces charges of fraud, tax evasion and money laundering dating back to when he was a lawyer before he became prime minister in 2012, the country’s anti-corruption agency said.

Some of his property has been seized pending the outcome of the case, the agency added.

Mr Ponta denies any wrongdoing.
