Defence, national security bodies demand pensions by special law

Representatives of the ministries of Defence and Internal Affairs, Romanian Intelligence Agency, Foreign Intelligence Agency, Security and Protection Service and Special Telecommunications Service have asked members of the Lower Chamber’s labour committee the recalculation of their pensions either on the basis of a special law or of a special chapter or by amending the Government’s single pension law, committee president Victor Paul Dobre said. The representatives presented lists that reconfirm the figures announced by the MoD, figures that show the application of the pension law would cut their pensions by 19 to 69 per cent, including pensions of RON 1,200 that will be cut to RON 800. Officials invited by the committee explained to MPs that over 70 per cent of pensioners of the aforementioned structures have benefits below RON 2,000. Dobre said Labour Minister Mihai Seitan should ‘very carefully analyse the calculation method,’ although he dismissed these figures on Wednesday. PM Emil Boc said on Wednesday that the application of the single pension law would not lead to a drop in military pensions across the board, with only pensions surpassing RON 3,000 set to be lowered. At the same time Seitan underlined that a drop of 69 per cent is out of the question.
