New evidence in 1989 Revolution file, submitted to Cotroceni Palace

A delegation of the Association “21 decembrie 1989” submitted yesterday to the registry office of Cotroceni Palace some of the documents-evidence in the file of the Romanian Revolution, in order to be consulted by President Traian Basescu, as part of the “recent history of Romania.” According to Agerpres, the documents were remitted to the association by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). “We want to give President Traian Basescu some of the documents sent by ECHR in order to be leafed over by him and conclude whether these documents are of national interest, and, afterwards, to make some legal decisions,” declared the president of “21 decembrie” Association, Doru Maries. He argued, among others, that he wants the Head of State to see that “the number of dead is bigger than that which was officially announced, namely 1,600 dead against 1,200 officially.” According to him and to the lawyer of the institution, Ionut Matei, “the file of the revolution has been procrastinated in the last 20 years by the Romanian courts and, in the meantime, many of those who shot hold now high offices in the General Prosecutor’s Office or in the army institutions.”

The two also said, in a press conference, that the case prosecutors who took over in 2007 the File of the Revolution from 1989 from prosecutor Dan Voinea, “refuse to put at the disposal of the damaged parties a list of the documents from the file,” thing which was communicated through an official note.

The president of the Association “21 Decembrie” recalled that initially the Court had not taken possession of the necessary documents “because of the ECHR agent from the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Razvan Horatiu Radu.” According to him, ECHR set a new deadline for the Romanian state, on September 7, 2009.
