The people affected by the storm in western country on Sunday will receive compensations from the Government, PM Mihai Tudose announced on Tuesday, while congratulating the local authorities in Timisoara for the way they coordinated the interventions. Yet, the prime minister slammed Enel energy distributor. “I see they have started a very active public relations activity lately instead of taking care of what they should do,” Tudose pointed out.
As for the compensations, the premier announced the people affected by the storm would receive them as soon as possible, with a Government resolution under way in two days at the latest.
“The sum is mounting to over RON 100,000 (…) There are schools on the list in Timis county. We’ll have the resolution in two days and we’ll unblock the money. All counties will benefit of the same treatment,” PM Tudose said.
