Romania: Former President Traian Basescu Sentenced as Secret Police Collaborator

Former Romania’s President, Traian Basescu, was sentenced for his collaboration with the communist police Securitate. Had he been exposed earlier, the politician would not have been the President of Romania, nor a member of the European Parliament, the position he currently occupies.

Law practitioners say that, for making misleading remarks, former President Traian Basescu faces jail time or, at least, loses his presidential privileges. These include a 24/7 limousine, bodyguards and other advantages offered by the state to all former presidents.

According to the High Court of Cassation and Justice of Romania, the former President of Romania, Traian Basescu, collaborated with the Communist Police after rejecting his appeal against the Appeal Court decision, which had sentenced the same. Traian Basescu denied the accusations and said he would go for the ECHR. During his political career, he had to state under oath that he hadn’t been a collaborator of the communist secret police. All those statements are false following the judges’ decision.

Traian Basescu is a Romanian politician who was the country’s President from 2004 until 2014. Basescu also served as Romanian Minister of Transport many times between 1991 and 2000, and as Mayor of Bucharest from 2000 to 2004 before becoming President.

Currently, Traian Basescu is a member of the European People’s Party, a party with Christian-democratic, conservative, and liberal-conservative member parties.

Art. 326 The Criminal Code establishes that False statements are a crime punishable by imprisonment from 6 months to 2 years or by a criminal fine. The limitation period of liability is 5 years from the date of committing the deed.

During communism, the former Romanian President acted as a collaborator by offering the Secret Police information about his colleagues and other citizens, Romanians or foreign. This meant that he informed the communist police about any citizen who was suspicious in the eyes of the communist party, denouncing any wrong move against the communist rules.

About the Communist Police in Romania

The Securitate was the popular term for the Department of State Security, the secret police agency of the Socialist Republic of Romania. Previously, before the communist regime, the Romanian secret police was called State Security.

The Securitate was one of the world’s most violent secret police groups under Ceaușescu, the Romanian Communist President, imprisoning, torturing, and even killing individuals.

This research is a big question mark regarding security and politics in Romania. If a collaborator of the communist police managed to remain hidden for so many years, to become President and politician with a strong presence in Romanian political life, who knows how many politicians like him are still hiding at the helm of the country today.

Brava, pentru a este articol, eu am publicat o carte despre Deformarea Statismului de către forțele și pionii Securității, in Engleză, in America. Titlul Cartii este Statismul și Ciclurile lui in Romania și Mexic.
Am lansat cartea: ?Cartea mea despre Generația Secu’ Sindrom.

“Etatismul…”, este o analiza detaliata a cauzei neîncrederii populației in oamenii de la putere.

“Etatismul…”, este o analiza detaliata a cauzei, de ce oamenii, nu mai au încredere in sistem (politic, ori de sănătate), din cauza experienței dictatoriale și dominației fricii fata de tot ceea ce reprezintă SEcuritatea ai leaderii, acest status quo in RO: acești bătrâni au tras cel mai greu, in angoasa de 40 de ani de dictatura: mental ei sunt terminați!

Acești oameni, care mor in spitale, începe Sin 1990, nu au luat suplimente nutriționale, nici educație nu au: sunt totalmente dominați de frica!
de aceea mulți nu merg la doctor, ori la spitale.
Tineri, ori batrini, aceștia nu mai au noțiunea de Comunitate, nu conștientizează ca de fapt, vor transmite întreagii comunități/populații cu care vin in contact virusul civic. Egoiști și inconștienți. Iar tara, in ghearele unir nevertebrate numiți ( misnomer) leaderi, întregul sistem este un teatru KABUKI, o drama de prost gust.
și anume , de ce oamenii, nu mai au încredere in sistem (politic, ori de sănătate), din cauza experienței dictatoriale și dominației fricii fata de tot ceea ce reprezintă status quo in RO: acești bătrâni au tras cel mai greu, in angoasa de 40 de ani de dictatura: mental ei sunt terminați!

Acești oameni, care mor in spitale, nu au luat suplimente nutriționale, nici educație nu au: sunt totalmente dominați de frica! Oamenii sunt infricosati, si de aceea mulți nu merg la doctor, și/ori refuza ca sa stea in spitale, unde fac septicemie.
Tineri, ori batrini, aceștia nu mai au noțiunea de Comunitate, nu conștientizează ca de fapt, vor transmite întreagii comunități/populații cu care vin in contact virusul covidescu. Egoiști și inconștienți. Iar tara, in ghearele unir nevertebrate numiți ( misnomer) leaderi, întregul sistem este un teatru KABUKI, o drama de prost gust.
