Financial problems for Valentin Ceausescu, son of Nicolae Ceausescu. Are they real?

Valentin Ceausescu, 67, son of late dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, lives a modest life, and is now forced to live with his wife and daughter on a property belonging to his father in law, ‘Libertatea’ informs.
According to the source, Steaua’s patron during the communist-era has a pension of RON 2,000 (approx. EUR 450), being forced to sell the works of art confiscated after the communist regime has fallen, which he has managed to recover in the meantime. Being forced to move out of the house owned together with his first wife, Valentin Ceausescu appealed to the goodwill of his current father-in-law, Constantine Dună, a former banker who served as director with several banks. Dună has provided him a villa on the outskirts of Bucharest.
Among the items seized are recovered are, according evz.ro, 42 paintings on canvas and on cardboard, also engravings, porcelain and silver objects. However, the paintings confiscated bear the signature of famous painters and are valued at hundreds of thousands of euros: George Petraşcu, Theodor Pallady, Nicolae Tonitza and Alexandru Ciucurencu.
“He has a pension of about RON 2,000, and when his ex-wife requested to stay in his home in Bucharest, he was forced to move with Roxana (his current wife), and his father-in-law gave him a villa near Bucharest. He never had large amounts of money as people believed, but when he saw he loses all lawsuits, including money, he has withdrawn from everything. Now he does not even want to get out of the house,” a close friend of Valentin Ceausescu told ‘Libertatea’ newspaper.
