  • [01] The Senate voted the ensemble of the draft Law regarding local public administration and the general regime of local autonomy

    The first part of the Senate session on Tuesday was devoted to debates on re-vote of Article 51 of the Draft Law regarding local public administration as well as the general regime of local autonomy. This in essence provides for territorial-administrative units in which citizens that belong to national minority are more than 20 per cent of total number of inhabitants to use mother tongue of ethnic minorities in wording decisions of local council as a variant to the document written in Romanian. The Article was passed with 85 votes for while the Law was passed by 72 votes in favour. Voting was however contested by the opposition which noted that Senators who were not present cast their vote in favour of the Law. Chairman of the session, Senator Ulm Spineanu said voting procedures would be resumed new week, says RADIO ROMANIA ACTUALITATI. RADOR

    [02] Chamber of Deputies debated draft Law on access to Securitate files and denouncing former Securitate as political police

    Chamber of Deputies continued debates on the draft Law regarding access to Securitate files and denouncing former Securitate as political police, says RADIO ROMANIA ACTUALITATI.MP-ies have established terms of political police and agent of former Securitate. Political police includes all structures of former Securitate that set up and maintained totalitarian communist power by suppressing or limitting fundamental human rights and liberties. An agent of former Securitate is any person that worked in the Ops. Department of the above mentioned, including covert missions, in the period l945-l989. A collaborator of the former Securitate seen as political police is any person that supplied information, directly or by indirect means, of a nature to prejudice fundamental human rights and liberties. Senator Ticu Dumitrescu told media that SRI-ROMANIAN INFORMATION SERVICE- will not open its archives to the National Council for a study of those documents and that, in his opinion, will have catastrophic effects on his legislative initiative that would become inapplicable in this way. In a letter to the Senator SRI motivates this decision by the fact that Archives of former Securitate are further essential to SRI activities. RADOR
