Roberta Anastase, other PDL leaders jeered at Tebea

Yesterday, several politicians attended celebrations paying tribute to national hero Avram Iancu, one of the heads of the 1948-1949 revolution in Transylvania.

When walking out of the graveyard where wreaths of flowers had been laid and a Te Deum service had been performed in memory of Avram Iancu, the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, Roberta Anastase and other ruling Democrat Liberal Party (PDL) officials such as Arad Mayor Gheorghe Falca and Chamber Secretary Gheorghe Barbu were booed by a group of people. Mediafax reports the protesters called them ‘thieves’ and asked them where the fleet and railway company were. Because of the incident, the official delegation had to turn around and leave the cemetery through a different gate. Afterwards, Roberta Anastase, the other PDL representatives and the Prefect of Hunedoara, Dezsi Attila, left for the plateau at Tebea where an outdoor feast was to be held and where political parties pitched several tents. Anastase, said she was ‘overwhelmed’ by the amount of care the locals give to their “holy land and remembrance of their heroes.” “They are people who gave everything to Romanians and asked for nothing in return,” Mediafax quoted Anastase as saying. As for the jeers at Tebea, Anastase said things like these are bound to happen whenever there is a crowd.

Nearly 500 people participated in the celebrations organised at Tebea. Among other politicians who attended was PSD General Liviu Dragnea, PRM Secretary General Gheorghe Funar, the president of the Hunedoara County Council, Ioan Mircea Molot, as well as mayors of various localities in the county and delegates of public institutions.
