Catholic Church files criminal complaint against Construction Inspectorate

The Bucharest Roman Catholic Archbishopric filed, on Tuesday, a criminal complaint against the Bucharest-Ilfov Territorial Construction Inspectorate, the State Construction Inspectorate (ISC) and their leaders, accusing them of abuse in office, failure to notify the legal authorities and assisting a criminal. According to a release remitted by the Archbishopric to Agerpres, Catholic faithful will picket, as of this Tuesday, the offices of the State Construction Inspectorate and Bucharest City Hall and will organize a prayer chain around the “Cathedral Plaza”, where construction works have not been ceased.

The Bucharest Roman Catholic Archbishopric argues that “unless ISC and the other state authorities take measures to halt construction works on this project, it will be proved, yet again, that Romania is a corrupt country, without any corrupt, a country where crimes are committed, without any criminal, a country which claims to respect the law, but where the law is violated at the highest levels of state authority”.

The Bucharest Roman Catholic Archbishop, Ioan Robu, announced, on Saturday, that, following a ruling of the Suceava Court of Appeal, the Cathedral Plaza building will be demolished, as it is “illegal”.
