A Romanian court on Monday upheld a jail sentence for the powerful head of Romania's ruling Social Democrats, Liviu Dragnea, meaning he now has 24 hours to report to police to begin his sentence. The verdict will almost certainly remove from public life a man who is widely seen as the puppet master behind the government and a key figure in the PSD's push for controversial judicial reforms. Dragnea was unsuccessful in his bid to overturn a conviction he received last year for using his influence to procure fake public jobs for two women, who were actually working for the Social Democrats (PSD) at the time.
