In Romania I have heard on numerous occasions about the use of anonymous prepaid cards in relation to various crimes and that they should be banned by requiring persons to register with their ID when buying them.
Following a very serious crime, the Government has issued an Ordinance to force mobile services providers to stop selling prepaid cards without an ID.
Coming to the question
I am trying to understand if the European Union influences in any way these things. I have read this article about lowering the threshold on prepaid cards, but I cannot find anything related to requiring an ID to buy such cards.
Question: Does the European Commission impose or at least recommend the registration of prepaid SIM cards?
