Public employees in Craiova, forced to carry out online propaganda for PSD
Iulia Mihaela Pauna from Craiova (southern Romania) accuses on her Facebook page that PSD has abused the personal accounts on the social network of the employees of a state-owned company, by forcing them to carry out propaganda for the Social-Democratic Party.
After the media has informed about this post, the woman has suspended her account, which cannot be accessed anymore, ziare.com reports.
“In Romania, in 2019 (…) people are forced to attend PSD rallies, are threatened with dismissal or awarded one liter of sunflower oil – I wrote about this when my mother, working with the Oltenia Water Company, was dragged to the rally – and this is a known issue. But today the PSD has committed identity theft and theft of opinion!” the citizen from Craiova wrote on Facebook.
“My mother, employed by the same company, was brought today to the PSD offices in Craiova by his bosses, along with other colleagues, without telling her why, and there she was asked for her Facebook account and password, in order to attach an icon of Claudiu Manda (PSD MP and PSD candidate for European Parliament – our note) and the message ‘I vote for PSD’.
Not knowing much about technology, she did not remember the Facebook password, and her bosses changed it, made another one from her own smartphone! They did this with all the people working with the Oltenia Water Company!
Then all our family started to receive requests from her, on Facebook, to appreciate Claudiu Manda’s page, although she did not touch her phone! She later changed her profile picture and the FB password, after I explained her by phone how it is done and what a mistake she made. I’m shocked.
Tell me, please, whom to address. Law 190/2018 on personal data has been abusively violated today by Manda’s supporters and who have committed identity theft and theft of opinion, I repeat. My mother almost burst into tears. I have no words. Help me with a share or an advice. Thank you,” Iulia Mihaela Pauna wrote.
