Penitentiary Administration trade unionists warn Justice Minister: Fake information is punished by imprisonment from 1 to 5 years

Without the compensatory appeal, the murderer in Mediaş would have been conditionally released in May 2019, the Federation of Trade Unions Federation with the National Penitentiary Administration says, contradicting an assertion by the Minister of Justice.

“We warn Minister Tudorel Toader that the crime of communicating false information is punishable by imprisonment from one to five years,” FSANP warns in a press release on Friday.

The reaction comes as on Wednesday, Justice Minister Tudorel Toader said that “the author of the murder in Mediaş is not part of the category of those who benefited from the compensatory appeal.”

“This is a new misinformation on the part of the one who becomes accomplice by indolence and badly motivated politically will with the recidivists of the compensatory appeal. In fact, in the absence of the so-called compensatory appeal law, the one known as the Mediaş murderer would have been conditionally released in May 2019, and on term in August 2021. The Penitentiary file of the convict Rusu Marius proves it, and a simple questioning of the database would dismantle the statements of Minister Toader,” the communiqué reads.

A 25-year-old man died last Sunday at the hospital in Medias, Sibiu County, after he had been stabbed Saturday night following a conflict among several locals in a nightclub. The aggressor, a 30-year-old man, had been recently released from prison based on the compensatory appeal. He has been caught by policemen near Blaj, Alba County and has been taken in for hearings.

The suspect is a repeat offender and had been recently released from jail based on the compensatory appeal. He had previously been convicted and imprisoned for murder.
