Foreign Ministry seeks explanation for Danish police criticism

Recent controversial statements made by a Copenhagen Police spokesperson, who accused Romanians of being able to ‘kill’ for a few pennies, prompted a tough reaction from the Foreign Ministry in Bucharest.

FM Teodor Baconschi told RFI yesterday that he will send a verbal note to his Danish counterpart. “The things said are, indeed, shocking, unfair and unacceptable,” Baconschi said. The minister however added that such statements had been generated by lower authorities and had been reproduced by Ove Dahl, spokesman and chief-investigator of the Copenhagen Police. In fact, Minister Baconschi insisted that the incident should not be overheated and added that international diplomatic incidents should not be generated by something a lower-rank official said. He further stated that entire states and governments should not be blamed for such matters either. “The core of the matter is different. Romanian citizens commit criminal offences in several member states. We should do more education locally, at the source.
