The proposal was initiated by the National Liberal Party and backed by signatures of more than 250,000 citizens of Romania. The alteration of the respective Article of the Constitution is aimed at the guaranteeing in an equal manner of private property while the present text stipulates for the protection by law of private property.

    [03] Cianide pollution of rivers Somes and Tisa

    According to the correspondent of RADIO ROMANIA ACTUALITATI, the Secretariate of the Committee for the combatting of disasters that met at Drobeta-Turnu Severin announced that until now there was no sign of cianide pollution of the river Danube.

In Belgrade, the Serbian minister of agriculture and water resources, Jovan Babovic, quoted by the Italian television, said that measurement of the Danube shows polluting indices under the alarm level as the flow of the river dillutes concentration of cianide, the afore mentioned source adds.

    The AUSTRALIAN Company Esmeralda which was accused of major pollution of the river Tisa and of the Danube rejected any accusation on Monday and even doubted the fact that cianides would be the cause of pollution. A spokesman of the Company told REUTERS' in Perth, Australia that a team of their specialists arrive at Baia Mare on Tuesday to examine the situation, RADIO ROMANIA ACTUALITATI mentions. RADOR
