Ombudsman looks into issues of communist-era abusively dispossessed property owners

Ombudsman Victor Ciorbea promised property owners who were abusively dispossessed by the communist regime that he will inquire with the local and central authorities, perform a thorough and serious analysis of the subject in its entire complexity and take steps to settle claims in accordance with the law, according to Agerpres.
The Ombudsman met on Monday with representatives of several associations of property owners who were abusively dispossessed by the communist regime; the delegation criticized in the first place certain provisions of pieces of legislation previous to Law No. 165/2013 on measures to complete the restitution in kind or equivalent compensation of the buildings abusively confiscated during the communist regime in Romania, a release of the Ombudsman’s Office informs this Tuesday.
Among the proposals made by members of the associations of former property owners was that people in serious condition be at least given social welfare which should then be deducted from the amount of compensations. The parties concluded that lately the Constitutional Court has made progress in interpreting the constitutionality issues of certain provisions of the new law, and representatives of the owners voiced hope that the national authorities will sort matters out.
Attending the meeting on behalf of the institution, alongside Ombudsman Victor Ciorbea, were deputy Ombudsman Ecaterina Teodorescu, advisors Ecaterina Mirea and Ileana Frimu, experts Camelia Goleanu and Claudiu Constantin.
The abusively dispossessed property owners were represented by the Association of Property Owners Dispossessed by the State, the French Association for the Defence of the Rights of Romania Property Owners, the Association for Private Property, the Association of Abusively Dispossessed and Former Deportees, the Eurosenior Association of Romanian Pensioners and Dispossessed and the ResRo-Germany Association.
