Miners’ Riots victims requests General Prosecutor that the files to be instrumented by civilian prosecutors
The Association of the Victims of the 1990 – 1991 Miners’ Riots in Romania (AVMR) requests the General Prosecutor of Romania, Laura Codruta Kovesi, that all the files of the Miners’ Riots of June 1990 should not be examined by military prosecutors, given the fact that, within these files, civilian persons, such as Ion Iliescu, Petre Roman or Miron Cosma are investigated. During a yesterday encounter with the General Prosecutor, AVMR representatives requested that the files of the Miners’ Riots be transferred from the Military Division of the General Prosecutors’ Office to the Division of Legal Pursuits, considering a decision of the Constitutional Court that stipulates the fact that military prosecutors are not allowed to instrument files that involve civilians. The President of the AVMR, Viorel Ene, mentions in a press release that he requested Laura Codruta Kovesi to check the activity of the military prosecutors in charge with the files of the miners’ riots, especially the teams led by Dan Voinea and Eugen Vasiliu.
Also, Viorel Ene requested the appointment of a chief-prosecutor to the Military Division of the General Prosecutors’ Office, a position that is empty for three years and currently granted, by delegation, to General Dan Voinea. Viorel Ene added that Laura Codruta Kovesdi promised to give an answer, in approximately a month, after the Superior Court of Magistracy will perform a control at the Military Division of the General Prosecutors’ Office.
