BUCHAREST: Romanian members of parliament said yesterday that the Transylvanian fortress commonly known as Dracula's Castle had been illegally returned to an heir of Romania's royal family and called on authorities to launch an investigation into the restitution.

MPs voted that the process had been illegal, citing procedural errors. They said the castle should have been transferred to private ownership before being given back to its former owners in May 2006.
