Bad food sends to hospital 20 children in Venus seaside resort


About 20 children who were in a summer camp in the Venus seaside resort were sent Monday night to the Mangalia Municipal Hospital, suffering from nausea and abdominal pain, with the diagnosis of food intoxication, MEDIAFAX reports. According to the director of the Constanta Public Health Department (DSP), Camelia Ciobotaru, an approximate number of 20 children from a summer camp in Venus said they were feeling bad and, after 10:00 PM, they started arriving at the Mangalia Hospital. The children received treatment and spent the night under medical monitoring. In the morning, they were released from hospital, as they were feeling better. Meanwhile, DSP Constanta issued a new hypothesis, which said that children had nausea and headaches because they had traveled for nearly 12 hours by train, in heat, and this was no bad food intoxication.

ARC seeks the Cathedral Plaza decision to be revised


The Romano-Catholic Archbishopric (ARC) of Bucharest submitted a request for the revising of the definitive and irrevocable decision pronounced by the Ploiesti Court of Appeals in the lawsuit against Millenium Building, the developer of the building raised right besides the St. Joseph Cathedral of Bucharest, Mediafax reports. “We formulated a request for the revising of the court decision before we received the motivation and now, after seeing the motives invoked by the court, in the shortest time we’ll also motivate our request, fully complying with the legal terms for this extraordinary way of attack,” the lawyer of the Bucharest Romano-Catholic Archbishopric, Ofelia Barsan told a press conference yesterday. The legal representative of the archbishopric added that she plans to file at the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) a complaint against the three judges who pronounced the sentence in favour of the real-estate developer.


According to Archbishopric representatives, the three judges ignored the obligation to ascertain and tell the truth and “put their initials on a revolting decision, by truncating legal texts, omitting to analyze pieces of evidence, incorrectly interpreting the law and ignoring the state’s attributions in the protection of historic monuments.”


This would be the second complaint at CSM against the three judges, after the one filed by the Greater Romania Party (PRM), announced in the same press conference on Tuesday by former senator Marius Marinescu, now a member of PRM.

CNP: Romanian economy to grow at an average 5.27 pc during 2014-2020


The economy will grow by an annual average 5.27 pc during the 2014-2020 interval, 4 per cent points above the average increase estimate for 2009-2013. This is the conclusion of a long-term forecast released by the National Prognosis Commission (CNP), obtained by Mediafax. The average growth for 2009-2013 was estimated at 1.32 pc, but this level will go down, because the 4 pc official target set for this year’s economic contraction won’t be reached. According to CNP, the monthly average gross income will double to EUR 871 (RON 3,545) by 2020 compared to the level estimated for this year (EUR 428 or RON 1,820), with the average annual growth standing slightly above 6 per cent. For the 2014-2020 period the CNP estimates annual growth rhythms ranging from 6.6 per cent in 2019 and 7.9 per cent in 2015.
