Romania PM says won’t quit over plagiarism charge

BUCHAREST (Reuters) – Romania’s new Prime Minister Victor Ponta said on Tuesday he would not resign over accusations of plagiarism, dismissing the charges as part of a political plot against him by the country’s president.

British scientific journal Nature reported on Monday it had seen documents showing more than half of Ponta’s 432-page thesis on the workings of the International Criminal Court had been copied from other sources.
