Nastase si Berlusconi, traficanti de copii

Data publicarii: 23/01/2004

Vicepresedinte al Comisiei de Afaceri Externe din Parlamentul European, Emma Nicholson acuza Guvernul roman ca a facut cadou lui Berlusconi 105 copii trimisi spre infiere in Italia. Executivul roman recunoaste ca a incalcat moratoriul asupra adoptiilor internationale si da din colt in colt

 

Baroneasa Emma Nicholson de Winterbourne a criticat dur in urma cu doua zile „incalcarea de catre Romania a moratoriului asupra adoptiilor internationale si a Conventiei Natiunilor Unite pentru Drepturile Copilului“. Baroneasa, care este vicepresedinte al Comisiei de Afaceri Externe din Parlamentul European, sustine ca a aflat ca, dupa vizita in Romania a premierului italian Silvio Berlusconi, autoritatile romane au decis sa trimita 105 copii orfani spre infiere, in Italia.

Emma Nicholson condamna acest pas, „care pune sub semnul intrebarii cooperarea fructuoasa dintre Romania si Parlamentul European, in aceasta problema“. Ea avertizeaza ca aderarea Romaniei la Uniunea Europeana depinde de indeplinirea criteriilor de la Copenhaga si considera ca acordul cu Italia este un act „ingrijorator“ din punct de vedere al indeplinirii acestor criterii politice. De asemenea, baroneasa cere „o explicatie completa si imediata“ Guvernului roman si premierului italian. In acelasi timp, ea cere Comisiei Europene sa investigheze rapid situatia. Comunicatul, formulat in termeni foarte duri, a venit dupa un proiect de raport favorabil privind progresele Romaniei in negocierile cu UE, prezentat in Comisia pentru Afaceri Externe a Parlamentului European.

Guvernul confirma

Romania si-a dat acordul, in decembrie, pentru adoptarea a 105 copii de catre cupluri italiene, in pofida moratoriului decis de Bucuresti in iunie 2001, a declarat ieri pentru AFP Gabriela Coman, secretar de stat pentru protectia copilului. „Am luat aceasta decizie dupa ce am analizat cu atentie fiecare caz. Este vorba despre situatii exceptionale, pe care le-am aprobat conform unei proceduri speciale si ar fi o eroare sa vorbim despre o incalcare a embargoului asupra adoptiilor de copii de catre cetateni straini“, a precizat ea. La inceputul lunii decembrie, premierul italian Silvio Berlusconi a cerut, intr-o scrisoare adresata omologului sau roman, Adrian Nastase, „ridicarea rapida a moratoriului“, in timp ce o delegatie parlamentara italiana a venit la Bucuresti pentru a cere autoritatilor adoptarea „de urgenta“ a 100 de copii de catre familii italiene. „Nu as putea vorbi despre presiuni din partea Italiei in privinta acestor adoptii“, a adaugat Gabriela Coman. Circa 800 de copii au fost adoptati de cupluri straine dupa intrarea in vigoare a moratoriului, in special in cazurile in care procedurile de adoptie fusesera deja incepute si fusesera create legaturi afective. Peste 1.500 de familii spaniole, americane, italiene sau franceze se afla, in prezent, pe lista de asteptare pentru cei circa 5.000 de copii romani considerati apti pentru adoptie.

Nastase: Europa este de vina

Premierul Adrian Nastase sustine ca Rom?nia nu este vinovata pentru ?ncalcarea moratoriului privind adoptiile internationale. Seful Executivului spune ca tara noastra doreste o lege care sa reglementeze situatia adoptiilor dar asteapta mai ?nt?i modelul european care nu exista la ora actuala. Premierul a explicat ca din aceasta cauza Rom?nia a permis adoptia a 105 copii de catre mai multe cupluri italiene. La rindul sau, ministrul roman de Externe, Mircea Geoana, a declarat ca Romania nu a incalcat moratoriul privind suspendarea adoptiilor internationale, ci a fost vorba doar despre cazuri punctuale in care a existat garantia unor guverne si in care procedurile de adoptie erau avansate. t

Un deputat european cere suspendarea negocierilor

Deputatul european Arie Oostlander a cerut in Comisia de Afaceri Externe a Parlamentului European, suspendarea negocierilor de aderare a Romaniei la Uniunea Europeana. In timpul discutarii in Comisie a raportului privind Romania, deputatul conservator a afirmat ca „Romania nu este un stat de drept, din cauza coruptiei inspaimintatoare si a situatiei catastrofice a copiilor orfani“. Oficialul a avertizat ca, „daca Romania nu se schimba profund, pentru a respecta principiile unui stat de drept, poate sa uite de aderarea la Uniunea Europeana“. „Situatia statului de drept nu numai ca nu s-a imbunatatit, dar s-a deteriorat de-a dreptul. Nu putem sa acceptam acest lucru. Intreaga administratie publica este stricata de coruptie. In aceste conditii, este dificil pentru Romania sa faca progrese“, a spus el. Oostlander si-a exprimat ingrijorarea fata de situatia copiilor orfani, dar si fata de „casatoriile intre copii“ si a spus ca „jurnalistii care critica guvernul nu sint in siguranta“. Premierul Adrian Nastase a declarat in replica, ca deputatul olandez Arie Oostlander, care a cerut suspendarea negocierilor de aderare a Romaniei la UE, este crestin-democrat si are o „problema personala“ in legatura cu faptul ca PNTCD nu a intrat in Parlament.
