Commemorating 29 years since the Romanian anti-communist Revolution, President Klaus Iohannis has stated that he will keep on lobbying for finding the truth and for the punishment of those who are guilty of the homicides committed during the Revolution.
“In December 1989, sick of abuses and shortcomings, Romanians chose to fight in the street for their ideals. Our fellows gave their life so that we could live today in liberty and democracy. I will keep on lobbying for finding the truth and for the punishment of those guilty of the crimes committed back then,” the head of state posted on Facebook on Friday.
At the same time, Klaus Iohannis underlined that Romanians will not tolerate anymore an autocratic ruling, based on abuse of power and corruption.
“History shows us that no regime that is humiliating and despising its own citizens can resist. Romanians will not tolerate anymore an autocratic ruling, based on the abuse of power and corruption, on incompetence and on the complete contempt for the citizen. We are honouring the memory of the Revolution’s victims only by firmly opposing any attacks against justice and democratic institutions“, the Romanian President concluded.
Klaus Iohannis has laid a wreath in the memory of the Revolution’s victims at the shrine in Universitatii Square on Friday morning.
