Deputy PM Marko writes gov’t document in Hungarian

A document written entirely in the Hungarian language, bearing Government’s heading and Deputy PM Marko Bela’s stamp was sent to the directors of Hungarian-language high schools, informing them of a meeting on educational issues, ‘Jurnalul National’ daily writes. Marko Bela is also the President of the Democratic Union of Magyars in Romania (UDMR). ‘Nothing would have been abnormal if the document would have had UDMR’s stamp and Marko Bela’s signature as President of UDMR. This however is an official document filed from the Romanian Prime Minister’s cabinet, signed and stamped by the Romanian Deputy PM, a document that has no trace of Romanian language in it. Not only is this an abuse but it is also the infringement of the Constitutional provisions concerning the official language of the Romanian state,’ the daily writes. The letter was leaked by Petru Florin Oproiescu, director of the ‘Aurel Persu’ High School in Targu Mures. Oproiescu was one of those that received the fax that summoned the high school directors for a March 5 meeting in Targu Mures. The high school director ignored the document but decided to send Prime Minister Emil Boc a letter informing him about the situation.

Marko yesterday dismissed criticism, saying that it was natural to send a letter in Hungarian to Hungarian school principals.
