Question referred

Is the first paragraph of Article 110 TFEU (formerly Article 90 EC) to be interpreted as precluding a Member State from introducing a tax with the characteristics of the pollution tax governed by Government Emergency Order No 50/2008, which levies a pollution tax on the registration in Romania of imported second-hand motor vehicles already registered in other Member States of the European Union, while that tax is not levied on second-hand motor vehicles registered in Romania in the event of their re-sale and consequent re-registration, in that such a tax could amount to a domestic tax on goods from other Member States which is indirectly discriminatory when compared with the tax treatment of domestic goods?
