Around 50 participants to the Romanian 1989 Revolution and their descendants headed on Friday to the High Court of Cassation and Justice with the purpose of filing complaints against the resolution to close the case of the Revolution.
They request that their complaint against the decision to close the case of the Revolution be considered on December 21 or 22, 2015, a highly symbolic period.
The December 21 Association filed a complaint against the resolution on December 12. On Friday the association members, who are parties in the case, came to file complaints in their own name.
“The 21 December 1989 Association opened new proceedings in court to invalidate the unjust decisions pronounced by Ordinances of prosecutors of the Military Prosecutors’ Section dated October 14 and November 10 and the proper resumption of research in the cases on the December 1989 events by a group of professional investigators,” the complaint filed by the Association at the supreme court reads.
President of the Association Teodor Maries announced on November 27 that the complaint against the decision to close the case of the Revolution had been rejected by the Military Prosecutor’s Office.
Maries requested, in a press conference, the resignation of the head of the Military Prosecutor’s Office, Ion Vasilache, of General Prosecutor Tiberiu Nitu and of Government Agent at the Court of Justice of the European Union, Horatiu Radu, and stated he will challenge the decision at the High Court of Cassation and Justice.
Prosecutors with the Prosecutor’s Office with the High Court of Cassation and Justice – the Military Prosecutors’ Section closed, on October 23, the case on the December 1989 events, which resulted in death, injury and confinement of multiple people, as well as destruction of goods.
