Oprea a ajuns în presa britanica ! Romania’s former deputy PM may face trial over motorcade scandal

BUCHAREST, Jan 25 (Reuters) – Romania’s former deputy prime minister may face trial over his use of motorcades that prosecutors say he was not entitled to, part of a crackdown on high-level graft in one of the European Union’s most corrupt member states.

Romanian prosecutors asked parliament on Monday to approve a criminal inquiry into Gabriel Oprea – needed because he is still a senator – but lawmakers have a patchy record on such requests, rejecting some with no clear legal reason.

Oprea resigned in November alongside prime minister Victor Ponta after a deadly night club fire triggered massive protests. His use of motorcades came to light in October after one of his police outriders died when his bike crashed into a pothole.

Oprea has said he has not broken any laws.

„I consider myself innocent and this will be confirmed sooner or later,” he told reporters on Monday.

„I will support the process of finding out the truth. I know political life comes with varied risks, including … that of becoming a collateral victim in power battles.”

Despre Visinescu în cotidianul britanic Daily Mail: Romania prosecutors: 20 years for communist-era prison guard

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Prosecutors at Romania’s top appeals court on Wednesday called for a 20-year sentence for a communist-era prison commander convicted of crimes against humanity for the deaths of 12 political prisoners.

Alexandru Visinescu, 90, was convicted in July for the deaths at the Ramnicu Sarat prison in eastern Romania during his 1956 to 1963 command. Visinescu, the first commander of a communist-era jail in Romania to stand trial, appealed to the High Court of Cassation and Justice.

At the final hearing Wednesday, Visinescu wept and pleaded: „Let me die!” He has said he was following orders, but declined to testify either verbally or in writing.

He was asked six times by the judge and prosecutor why inmates died under his command. He answered just once, suggesting they died of old age.

The prison housed people who had been members of the intellectual, political and military elite in Romania before World War II and who had run afoul of the communist authorities.

All were held in solitary confinement and could communicate with each other only by Morse code. Prosecutors said former prisoners testified that they were denied access to medical treatment, heating, exercise and adequate food. Beatings were common. Nearly 140 inmates were incarcerated during the seven years Visinescu was in command.

Romania offers Moldova $60 million loan to spur reforms

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — The Romanian government has offered Moldova a loan of 60 million euros ($65 million) to prevent economic collapse in the impoverished ex-Soviet republic.

But Romanian Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos said Tuesday that Moldova will have to fight corruption and make other reforms if it is to get the money.

Ciolos made the announcement during a visit by Moldova’s Prime Minister Pavel Filip.

Moldova, a small country wedged between European Union-member Romania and Ukraine, is Europe’s poorest nation. It Moldova has been riven for months by political turmoil sparked by the disappearance of more than $1 billion from three Romanian banks, fraud in which a former prime minister, Vlad Filat, has been implicated.

Moldovans furious at corruption have been waging protests recently, even storming Parliament earlier this month.

The Guardian: Aferim! review: a brutal manhunt loaded with laughs

Set in 1830s Wallachia, this shaggy drama is rife with foul behaviour but also contains tenderness and a gallows humour reminiscent of Robert Altman’s best work.

Aferim is a Turkish loan word Romanians use for “bravo”, but with a slight sarcastic edge. (Think “Oh, braaaaavo.”) It is repeated by pretty much every character in this shaggy manhunt through 1830s Wallachia, as if the movie itself is winking its awareness that these characters, while still sympathetic, are all wretched and deplorable. Aferim! is rife with foul behaviour, vulgar racism, sexism and a general low opinion of human life. A moral peak is, for example, when a lead character suggests perhaps a prisoner shouldn’t be summarily executed, just beaten to the point of near-death in the most humiliating fashion. (Heartwarming!) And yet, as with so many Romanian films, Radu Jude’s approach is one of deadpan humour, born from a world-weary culture grappling with a bumpy history that seems to have only one constant: people were made to suffer.

Costandin (Teodor Corban) and Ionitā (Mihai Comānoiu) are a father-and-son team of lawmen commissioned to hunt down an escaped slave. We ease into the story slowly as the pair wander through a stagnant feudal landscape, making a mess wherever they search. Early on they encounter a priest who gives a raging sermon about the Jews, the Turks and the slave Gypsies, who are given a number of epithets, the most common (and least offensive) being “crows”.
