MEP Laszlo Tokes argues that a potential withdrawal of the „Star of Romania” would be a „discriminative, anti-Hungarian act” and would be the equivalent of „a repeated lack of consideration towards the revolutionary past of Timisoara”, Mediafax informs. In a press release issued on the occasion of the 25 years commemoration of the day when, in Arad, the Oradea Reformed Diocese priests adopted the text of a protest against the plan of Nicolae Ceausescu to systematize the villages, Laszlo Tokes says that, lately, against him „a campaign of denigration and hatred” is carried out. Tokes quotes the words of PM Victor Ponta, according to whom he is „the representative of the anti-Romanian interests, finaced by those who want Romania to be instable, attacked from all sides”, the statement of President Traian Basescu, who „questioned” his right to a Romanian citizenship, as well as the press in Romania „which is full of various accusations”. He is accused „either of a anti-constitutional and anti-Romanian behavior, or of extreme nationalism and irredentism, or of damaging the interethnic peace and the European values”. The MEP says that „this series of concerted attacks reaches its climax” in the intention to withdraw the Order of the “Star of Romania”, awarded for merits “that were demonstrated during the 1989 Timisoara Revolution”.
