Romanian Senator Catalin Voicu Gets 7 Years Jail Sentence For Influence Peddling

On 22 April 2013, the Supreme Court of Romania handed a final decision convicting Catalin Voicu, former Senator for the Social-Democrats, to 7 years jail sentence with no appeal while the convictee gets comfortably walked around hospitals for obesity treatment, diabetes, heart condition, rectal hemorrhaging and anemia.

How many more hospitals and anemias before jail, Catalin Voicu? There’s a national trend in Romania to get treatment for all possible diseases minutes before a jail sentence is handed. Hospitals are doing wonders in listing them all of a sudden!

Others have tried to enact a suicide attempt with Burberry scarves and now are alive and giving interviews so this time it’s rectal hemorrhaging… anemia is a bit far fetched though! Hopefully Romania gets upgraded in its MCV Justice Report with the EU this time.

    Reblogged this on euzicasa and commented:
    Where there is LAW there is CONSEQUENCE: When everybody is considered under the LAW! AND IN A CIVILIZED SOCIETY EVERYBODY SHOULD BE UNDER THE LAW!

    da, dar pe aceste meleaguri, uitate de Dumnezeu toti sant deasupra legii, si nimeni nu trece pe la curtea de justitie, si nimeni nu e arestat, sau pedepsit! Asa ca bine voua, ca mai aveti din cind in cind dovada ca exista legi care pedepsesc jaful!

      E rara si la noi dovada, e un fel de cadou din an in Pasti 🙂 Daca ar fi dovada asta in fiecare caz in parte nu ar fi suficiente locuri de cazare. Interesant comentariul dvs. 🙂

        Si de Florii…Am crezut intotdeauna in civilizatie…dar civilizatia incepe cu legea, si nimeni, nicaieri niciodata nu poate fi deasupra legii: sa ca chiar exemplele rare, sant exemple mai bune decit niciun exemplu de loc!
        Cel putin ii fac pe unii sa se codeasca, cat de cat: legea fara aplicare este o incurajare la jaf si crima!

        Mi-a facut placere sa discutam!
        Toate bune va doresc!

      • Cristina P. says:

        Se codesc in sensul ca isi iau 17 cartele telefonice adica isi iau precautii suplimentare si se adapteaza 🙂 Sarbatori Fericite!

      • george-b says:

        LA fel va doresc la toti de pe-acasa!
        Doamne-ajuta!

    Is there any government that follows the same laws as the rest of us? 😦
    I don’t even know how to respond to this kind of stuff anymore. It’s just beyond ridiculous.
