Group of Roman-Catholic faithful stake out Culture Ministry

A group of Roman-Catholic faithful have protested outside the Ministry of Culture, Denominations and National Patrimony yesterday, an institution that they accuse of showing ‘passivity’ to the danger which the ‘St. Joseph’ Cathedral finds itself in, Agerpres informs. A 19-storey building is being built close to that Cathedral.

On July 7 the Roman-Catholic Archbishopric in Bucharest requested the Ministry to withdraw the permits that formed the basis of the construction authorization of the ‘Cathedral Plaza’ building, but it has received no answer to its request. The Roman-Catholic Archbishopric in Bucharest has resorted to an extraordinary appeal, asking for the revising of the Ploiesti Court of Appeal ruling that had been issued on June 25. The ruling allowed the completion of the construction works on the 19-storey building that lies only eight meters away from the ‘St. Joseph’ Cathedral.
