In Romania, on the right side there is nothing left


‘‘I’ve always been a right wing person’’, said Mr. Mihai Razvan Ungureanu, the designated prime-minister for Romania, on February 7th this year, when he was nominated by the acting President of Romania, Mr. Traian Basescu, as the future prime-minister of Romania.

This was rather amusing for the 43 years old former Chief of Spies in Romania, who also served as a Minister for Foreign Affairs in the Romanian Government, between 2004-2007, This was amusing because back in 1989, before the fall of the communism, Mr. Ungureanu served as a leading representative of UTC, the former communist body for young people, especially undergraduate people.

‘’Of course he was a right wing persons with beliefs on the right spectrum of the politics’’, joked a friend of mine. ‘‘During the communist era, everything was up-side down, so being a right wing person on that time showed you like being a leftist.’’

It is almost like on the TV screen: if you raise your left hand in the TV studio, people back home will perceive that you raised the right hand. You might look like a rightist but back in the studio, you are very leftist.

This wouldn’t came back into my attention if, after 64 years, the self entitled ‘‘right wing government’’ wouldn’t have been in the situation where it looked more communist than the communists themselves. I am referring at the personal property issue, or, to be more specific, at the way in which the Romanian government understands to solve the issue of restitution of the properties that were confiscated by the communists in 1948.

Back in 1948, the communist regime that came into power nationalized by a parliamentary law the assets that were in the possession of the capitalists. The short story was like this: everything was nationalized (that means confiscated and transformed in public property). The long story mentioned some 77 categories of enterprises (from mining, oil, sugar, textile, chemical to credit companies), that became public property under the management of the communist regime.

Under this confiscatory rule (Law 119/ June 1948), there was a Chapter that tried to legitimate the catastrophe: this was the Chapter 4, that dealt with the compensations for the former private owners. The text was like this: ‘‘the State will compensate the owners and the shareholders of the nationalized companies. For this, we create the Nationalized Industry Fund. The Fund will issue bonds (in favor of the former owners) that will be bought back from the future profit made by the nationalized companies’’. In brief, it was like owning a cab, that was confiscated by the government. From the future activity and future profits of the state owned taxi-business, the communist regime said that is going to compensate the owner of the cab.

Hilarious, but true. It is useless to say that the Romanian government never paid back for the nationalized assets. Until 1989. After the fall of the communism and on its way back to a democratic society, Romania said that it will give back the nationalized properties or where it will not be possible, it will pay some compensation.

Some 200.000 people were believed to represent the target of the restitution process or of the compensation. A few got their properties back. Others, after more than ten years of fight in the justice for their rights, ceased and sold for pennies their rights to very diligent politicians or lawyer with strong connections, that become ‘’de facto’’ beneficiaries of the restitution process. Most of them were send to a vehicle called ‘‘Property Fund’’, in order to be compensated. After the situation of the property would have been made clear, they would have received some property papers that were good enough to be converted into share at the Property Fund (a vehicle created by share of the most important and profitable companies of Romania – like energy companies).

After this ‘‘restitution’’ process, some 5000 out of 200.000 owners became shareholders of the Property Fund (a vehicle that was estimated to worth 4 billion Euros). Some of the 5000 new shareholders had nothing to do with abuses from the communist regime: they were simple ‘‘clever enough’’ to buy litigious rights from desperate people who were tired enough after waiting almost 20 years to get their properties back. That’s how people that had nothing to do with the abuses, like a former Minister for Finance – Ionut Popescu (who was acting as a Finance Minister when the Property Fund was created), became shareholders of the Fund. Mr. Popescu once got more than 1% of the 4 billion Euros Fund (even if he had not any single property confiscated by the communists). As a finance minister, Mr. Popescu was personally in charge with speeding the restitution process. He did not.

Even the acting Finance Minister, Bogdan Dragoi, who had nothing but benefits from the communist regime, was a benefit taker from the Property Fund. He was paid almost 200.000 Euros as a member of the Supervisory Board for the Property Fund. Meanwhile, nobody speeded the restitution process.

Meanwhile, politicians with strong connection at the government level, like Mr. Boldea, a jailed deputy of the government party, were net beneficiaries of the restitution process. Mr. Boldea even succeeded to receive a property that was supposedly confiscated by the communists at an address that was invented just after the fall of the communism.

Everything went bad till the crisis came into Romania. Than, the bad became worse: the government decided to confiscate the profits of the companies that became part of the Property Fund (like Romgaz) doing another ‘’de facto’’ nationalization process. The money were supposed to compensate the people that were abused by the communist regime and ended to compensate the lack of competence of the people who are now managing the economy. The administrator of the Fund – Franklin Templeton Asset Management sued the Romanian Government on the issue of profit confiscation.

And than the worse became ugly: the self-entitled ‘‘right wing believer’’, Mr. Ungureanu, the acting prime-minister of Romania, came with another strike: there are no money. So, his government propose to compensate just 15% of the real value of the assets. And this in the next 10 to 12 years. Even the communists, back in 1948, proclaimed that they will pay 100% as compensation. That means that in 2024, some people will finally get to get back 15% of the value of their heirs properties. That means 35 years AFTER the fall of the communism (that was ruling Romania for 45 years).

The life expectancy in Romania is 73 years. In order for a person to get 15% of their properties value in 2024, they where supposed to be 38 years old at the revolution, in 1989. And to dedicate the rest of their lives to courts, attorneys, trials and so on. This ‘‘performance’’ would have definitely made proud the genuine communists, back in 1948. The leftists. Even if, back in 1948, on the left side there was nothing right. After 64 years, the Romanian reality shows that on the right side, there is nothing left. Nothing. This shouldn’t surprise us: after 22 years, the former communist HR department is still able to provide a prime-minister for the country.

  4. Grecia: de la PARADIS FISCAL la IAD FINANCIAR c-asa vede Germania SOLIDARITATEA

    …. europeana !

    Adica ca:

    1) TREBUIE SA PLATESTI = CONTRIBUI LA FEL CA TEUTONU`;

    2) CHIAR DACA NU MUNCESTI – si nici nu consumi – NEMTESTE !

  5. GUVERNANTI = Oameni buni ?

    1) chiar sunteti IDIOTI ?:
    2) ori aveti UN SISTEM = UN STAT DE DREPT DIABOLIC = SATANIC ?

    Pai daca CURTEA CONSTITUTIONALA A ANULAT O LEGE, INSEAMNA CA A ANULAT SI EFECTELE EI !

    Efecte, care trebuie REPARATE AUTOMAT DE CATRE LEGIUITOR (guvern si/sau parlament = emitent) adica::

    FARA ABSOLUT NICIO CERERE PRE_ALABILA DIN PARTEA PAGUBITILOR

    – inaintate UNEI A DOUA INSTANTE (oricum INFERIOARA CURTII CONSTITUTIONALE) –

    deoarece:

    PAGUBITII NU SI-AU DAT NICIODATA VREUN ACCEPT = ACORD

    – guvernului si/sau parlamentului –

    ASTFEL INCAT PENSIONARII SA FIE ULTERIOR NEVOITI CA SA DECLARE „din proprie initiativa” ANULAREA UNUI ASEMENEA ACT JURIDIC !

  6. Ce fel de STAT DE DREPT (sado-masochist) este acela in care:

    1) SE PREZUMA CA UN PAGUBIT = UN PREJUDICIAT ????

    2) AR PUTEA REFUZA VREODATA REPARAREA UNEI NE_DREPTATI = IN_JUSTITII CE I-A FOST FACUTA CHIAR = TOCMAI DE CATRE STATUL CARE I8N CONSTITUTIE DECLARA CA PROTEJEAZA CETATEANUL CORECT ???????

    3) SI DIN ACEST MOTIV, CETATEANUL SA SE VADA ASTFEL FORTAT CA

    – printr-o cerere suplimentara –

    SA FORTEZE STATUL SA-I REPARE PAGUBA PE CARE I-A FACUT-O DIN PROPRIE – si mai ales EXCLSUIVA – INITIATIVA „LEGISLATIVA” ????

  7. In opinia mea,

    se pare ca in tara numita Romania, cei delegati de popor – natiune – ca sa conceapa si sa aplice UN SISTEM JURIDIC = UN STAT DE DREPT, au anulat toate celelalte RAMURI ALE DREPTULUI precum:

    1) dreptul CIVIL;
    2) dreptul FAMILIEI;
    3) dreptul PENAL;
    4) dreptul CONSTITUTIONAL;
    5) drept ADMINISTRATIV;
    6) dreptul FISCAL;
    7) dreptul FINANCIAR;
    8) etc.

    lasand ca sa functioneze in locul tuturor celorlalte RAMURI DE DREPT doar = numai = exclusiv O SINGURA RAMURA:

    6) DREPTUL COMERCIAL !

  8. … pardon 9 nu 6 !

  9. Ah, si ca nu cumva sa se creada ca Adrian Nastase (si/sau Adrian Severin) ar fi mai ceva decat Emil Boc, trebuie sa adaug ca in afara celor 9 RAMURI de drept:

    si dreptul INTER_NATIONAL a fost pervertit in drept COMERCIAL !

    • Banu` a ramas singurul IZVOR = singura SURSA de „DREPT” = de JUSTITIE in lume !

      BANU` a de_tronat = a sur_clasat NEURONU`!

      Daca nu ma credeti, luati-va exemplu de la Becali, Vanghelie, etc. !

      BANU` a ingenuncheat SPIRITUL = INTELECTUL !

      BANU` – sATana – DOMINA LUMEA !

  10. Radu,

    1) nu exclud ca CAPITALISMUL = ca EXTREMA DREAPTA, sa mai poata inregistra UN NOU MAXIM ISTORIC in lume

    – ca sa folosesc limbajul bursier = de „piata” –

    2) dar personal cred ca:

    2.1) desi pare POSIBIL;
    2.2) este putin PROBABIL !

  11. Radu,

    Dar mai roaga si tu lumea:

    1) SA MAI SI SCRIE PE BLOG;
    2) NU DOAR SA CITEASCA,

    ca eu am obosit sa tot scriu scrisori ca Eminescu, adica la care nu-mi raspunde nimeni !

  12. …. nici caca …… nici maca !

    Ca doar n-oi fi eu chiar atat de profund, si nici ei chiar atata de indiferenti, c-atunci ar fi grav!

  13. Radu,

    In EXTREMA DREAPTA Romania are exponenti cu diumul, numai ca:

    s-au ascuns cu totii in spatele lui Mihai Giurgea, adica l-au bagat pe el la inaintare !

  14. Radu,

    Nu stii ca e si-o vorba, ca romanul s-ar duce oriunde si ar face orice, cu conditia SA FIE SEF?

    Asta este o mentalitate si un comportament:

    DE EXTREMA DREAPTA = DE „ATACANT” = DE POMANAGIU !

    Probabil de la prea mult fotbal cat au romanii in cap !

  15. Radu,

    Am glumit, cum sper ca ai glumit si tu afirmand ca in Romania n-ar mai fi nimeni de dreapta.

    Io indraznesc sa te contrazic zicand ca:

    MAJORITATEA PSD-ului – declarat DE STANGA – ESTE DE DREAPTA !

    Iar PNL-ul care ar trebui sa fie DE DREAPTA cel putin prin titulatura, ESTE DE STANGA !

    La romani s-a ajuns ca la bulgari – cu ceafa groasa – datul aprobator din cap inseamna negatie, si viceversa !

    In opinia mea, AMBELE OLIGARHII sunt DE EXTREMA DREAPTA:

    1) atat OLIGARHIA COMUNISTA;

    2) cat si DICTATURA CAPITALISTA !

    DE STANGA este doar SOCIALISMUL !

    Intreaba-l si pe Mihai Giurgea, si-o sa vezi ca si el iti spune la fel, si anume ca, de existat nu trebuie sa existe decat:

    1) COIMEA = ELITELE, indiferent de orientare;

    si

    2) PULIMEA = DOBITOACELE, care trebuie sa se supuna COIMII = elitelor, si s-o urmeze IN ORICE DIRECTIE II DICTEAZA ACEASTA.

  17. Daca chiar vreti ca sa salvati sistemul de pensii din Romania, atunci:

    PLAY BIG = JUCATI MEREU LA MAI MARE, adica:

    1) STOPATI EMIGRATIA;

    2) DECLANSATI IMIGRATIA ca Victor Ponta, adica:

    1) sistati exportul – DEFICITUL – de forta de munca;
    2) si importati urgent forta de munca: chineza, filipineza, thailandeza, coreeana, indoneziana, pakistaneza, indiana, etc.

  18. Adica romanii nu sunt si ei tot cetateni europeni ?

    De ce sa n-aibe si romanii fraierii lor ?

  19. Sa vina „investitoru` strain sa-mi cumpere activu`, si apoi tot el sa si munceasca pentru banii lui !

  20. Sa vina mai repede „investitoru`” strain ca sa-si cumpere de la mine activu`, si apoi tot el sa si munceasca-n tara asta, daca vrea ca sa-si castige banii inapoi !

  21. Privatizati-va bei desteptilor, cu altii mai fraieri ca voi, nu cu unii deja I_LUMINATI !

  22. Dar fiti destepti, ca nu cumva sa aduceti chinezil, filipinezi, vietnamezi, pakistanezi, indonezieni: etc.

    EXPATRIATI DIN GERMANIA = VATERLAND, si/sau din TARA MUMA FRANTA !

    Ci aduceti de-aia ORIGINALI = „DE LA MAMA – ciuma – LOR”, adica la prima generatie-n pantofi !

  23. Si care odata ajunsi in Romania:

    AU CONVINGEREA CA L-AU APUCAT PE DUMNEZEU DE P ………….. ICIOARE !

  24. Romani,

    Renuntati sa mai munciti la PIRAMIDA altora si:

  25. Romani,

    Urcati-va voi in carca altor popoare daca chiar vreti sa supravietuiti !

    Oasele voastre vor trebui regasite permanent la suprafata, pentru ca oricum:

    NIMENI NU ARE TIMP CA SA SAPE SUFICIENT DE ADANC DUPA DOVEZI !

  26. Romani,

    Nu mai cheltuiti aiurea banii pe reclame ca Romania ar fi PAMANTUL FAGADUINTEI

    – unde cainii comunitari doinesc din frunza ca la dramba –

    in loc sa vi-l umpleti de SCLAVI adusi FARA NICIO DISCRIMINARE RASIALA, ca sa lucreze – pe terenurile agricole ramase parloaga – la inaltarea:

    COLUMNEI LUI CRIN:

    peste toate PIRAMIDELE-COLUMNELE-MALLURI din Dubai !

  27. Romani,

    Nu mai emigrati in strainatate ca sa lucrati si sa va abandonati copiii in grija unui STAT CARE NU EXISTA, ci:

    IMPORTATI VOI BONELE PENTRU COPII

    – precum si MENAJERELE –

    din tarile care n-au inca O BANCA CENTRALA care sa fi invatat:

    1) CUM SI CATI BANI TREBUIE TIPARITI SI ACORDATI IEFTIN DREPT CREDITE PENTRU DEZVOLTAREA AFACERILOR;

    2) ASTFEL INCAT FRAIERII DIN LUMEA INTREAGA SA SE INGHESUIE = SA FACA COADA CA SA LUCREZE PENTRU VOI !

  28. Faceti si voi la fel ca americanii, adica:

    LEASING CU FOND FUNCIAR = IMOBILIAR !

    Cum ????

    Puneti-l pe Isarescu ca sa tipareasca lei cu toptanu`, pe care sa-i ofere ieftin = cu dobanda zero la chinezii, vietnamezii, filipinezii, indonezienii care:

    1) NU MAI POT SUPRA_VIETUI IN SUPRA_POPULARE;

    2) SI AR FI PREA_FERICITI SA VINA CA SA MUNCEASCA = SA FACA AFACERI IN ROMANIA !
