President Klaus Iohannis announced on Thursday that he decided to withdraw the Order of the Star of Romania distinction from Laszlo Tokes.
“The matter reached my table and I have to make a decision. In my opinion, we should consider certain issues when analysing such questions. The one who grants a distinction wishes to reward the person distinguished, the one who receives and accepts the distinction must recognise Romania and the Constitution of Romania, to appreciate the values that stay at the grounds of the Constitution of Romania. Considering all this, I have decided to withdraw the “Romania Star”: Order from Mr. Laszlo Tokes,” the head of state said at the Cotroceni Palace
