EU Parliament says we are too poor to raise the orphans. The Hague Convention stipulates that no plea of poverty is despartire child family, give reply Romanian authorities.
Claire Gibault, a written statement initatorii to resume international adoptions and signed by over 400 dignitaries Europeans, reveals for "Newspapers" Why upset the Euro-parliamentarians. When asked by Cotidianul, Gibault admitted she knew before Stringer signatures to start the final report on the situation of Romania in cases of international adoption outstanding. But, said Gibault, the protest continued for the report by Romania was born in suspicion among Euro-parliamentarians, because "the criteria used in evaluating the dossiers are tendentious.
 
In addition, Romanian authorities wrongly interpreted the Hague Convention, which we invoke to justify banning international adoptions, not observed in fact the child's best interests, added the Euro-parliamentarians.
Controversy
Claire Gibault gave the example of the method by which a child is adopted or neadoptabil said, what the biological family, if known, in this respect. "At this point, we are not convinced that biological families, who have declared against the sudden adoption of their child, these statements are spontaneous, having in mind that its never knew or ever tried to find his child," said Euro-parliamentarians.
In reply, the Head Office for Romanian Adoptions, Theodora Bertzi, said that "statements made by social worker from the family of a child with uncertain legal situation is in evidence on which the judge determines if the child is adopted or not. So these can be checked anytime.
Too poor to raise the kids
Another of the Hague Convention, which Romania is not up to the expectations of the EU parliament is refusing to keep international adoption as an option in national adoptions. Claire Gibault is convinced that Romania can not, economically, to provide a better life for children want foreigners, who will remain in the country. As justification, Gibault make two arguments: few Roman families who want to adopt and their financial problems.
"We know that it is still difficult for most families to use the national adoption because of the still precarious economic situation in Romania, which makes it easier," says Gibault. And added that it seems "unfair" the Romanian support as "those children will remain abandoned to foster care before adoption, so long as the Roman families who seem to want to adopt them will be in financial difficulty ... And thus measure risk take very much, to the detriment of children.
"These are not arguments for the resumption of international adoptions. We have an economy that developed, but this does not mean that we must give the children of strangers. The Hague Convention stipulates that poverty not be a reason for despartire a child of the family" , said chief ORA.
Two Romanians fight for a child
How about national adoptive families, "their number is, in fact, twice bigger than that of the adoptive children," he said Bertzi.
Romania considers that the official reason for Claire Gibault, Euro-parliamentarians who know that adopted two children from Togo, emphasizes the inefficiency of domestic investment and adoptiior Romanian national support is the resumption of international adoptions. It recognized and Euro-parliamentarians at the end of the interview.
Statement by the hidden message
In early July, five Euro-parliamentarians, Claire Gibault, Jean-Marie Cavada, Antoine Duquesne, Charles Tannock and Enrique Crespo Barn, announced that "written declaration" by requiring the Romanian Government to solve cases of international adoptions outstanding was signed by over 400 colleagues. Even after more than three months Theodora Bertzi, State Secretary at the Romanian Office for Adoptions, went to Brussels to inform special report on the so-called "pending cases" has been completed, the Euro continued Stringer signatures. Statement of the five was approved in Parliament and will reach the mass of the Romanian Government in September.

Europa ne vrea copiii de mila

Parlamentul UE spune ca sintem prea saraci ca sa ne crestem orfanii. Conventia de la Haga nu stipuleaza ca saracia este motiv de despartire a copilului de familie, dau replica autoritatile romane.
Claire Gibault, unul dintre initatorii declaratiei scrise pentru reluarea adoptiilor internationale si semnata de peste 400 de demnitari europeni, dezvaluie pentru "Cotidianul" ce ii supara pe europarlamentari. Intrebata de "Cotidianul", Gibault a recunoscut ca stia dinainte sa porneasca stringerea semnaturilor de raportul final al Romaniei privind situatia cazurilor de adoptie internationala restante. Insa, a spus Gibault, protestul a continuat pentru ca raportul realizat de Romania a nascut suspiciuni in rindul europarlamentarilor, deoarece "criteriile folosite la evaluarea dosarelor sint tendentioase".
 
In plus, autoritatile romane interpreteaza gresit Conventia de la Haga, pe care o invoca pentru a motiva interzicerea adoptiilor internationale, nerespectind in fapt interesul superior al copilului, a adaugat europarlamentarul.
Controverse
Claire Gibault a dat ca exemplu metoda prin care un copil este declarat adoptabil sau neadoptabil, ce presupune acordul familiei biologice, daca este cunoscuta, in acest sens. "La acest punct, nu sintem convinsi ca familiile biologice, care s-au declarat subit impotriva adoptiei copilului lor, fac aceste declaratii spontan, avind in vedere ca nu-si cunosteau sau nici nu incercasera vreodata sa-si caute copilul", a declarat europarlamentarul.
In replica, seful Oficiului Roman pentru Adoptii, Theodora Bertzi, a spus ca "declaratiile luate de asistentul social de la familia unui copil cu situatie juridica incerta reprezinta proba la dosarul pe baza caruia judecatorul stabileste daca acel copil e adoptabil sau nu. Deci aceste acte pot fi verificate oricind". 
Prea saraci ca sa ne crestem copiii
Un alt punct al Conventiei de la Haga, unde Romania nu se ridica la asteptarile parlamentarilor UE, este refuzul de a mentine adoptia internationala ca o varianta la adoptiile nationale. Claire Gibault este convinsa ca Romania nu poate, din punct de vedere economic, sa le ofere o viata mai buna copiilor doriti de straini, care vor ramine in tara. Ca justificare, Gibault aduce doua argumente: putine familii romane care vor sa adopte si problemele financiare ale acestora.
"Noi stim ca este inca dificil pentru majoritatea familiilor sa recurga la adoptia nationala, din cauza situatiei economice inca precare din Romania, care nu faciliteaza procedurile", spune Gibault. Si adauga ca i se pare "incorect" din partea Romaniei sa sustina ca "acei copii abandonati vor ramine la asistenti maternali pina la adoptie, atita vreme cit familiile romane care par sa vrea sa-i adopte vor fi in dificultate financiara... Si astfel, masura provizorie risca sa dureze foarte mult, in detrimentul copiilor".
"Acestea nu sint argumente pentru reluarea adoptiilor internationale. Nu avem o economie asa de dezvoltata, dar asta nu inseamna ca trebuie sa ne dam copiii strainilor. Iar Conventia de la Haga nu stipuleaza ca saracia poate fi un motiv de despartire a copilului de familie", a spus seful ORA.
Doi romani se bat pentru un copil
Cit despre familiile nationale adoptive, "numarul acestora este, in fapt, de doua ori mai mare decit cel al copiilor adoptabili", a mai spus Bertzi.
Oficialul roman considera ca motivul pentru care Claire Gibault, europarlamentarul despre care se stie ca a adoptat doi copii din Togo, pune accentul pe ineficienta sistemului de plasament familial romanesc si a adoptiior nationale este sustinerea reluarii adoptiilor internationale. Fapt recunoscut si de europarlamentar in finalul interviului.
Declaratie cu mesaj ascuns
La inceputul lunii iulie, cinci europarlamentari, Claire Gibault, Jean-Marie Cavada, Antoine Duquesne, Charles Tannock si Enrique Bar?n Crespo, anuntau ca "declaratia scrisa" prin care cereau Guvernului Romaniei sa rezolve cazurile de adoptii internationale restante a fost semnata de peste 400 de colegi. Desi in urma cu peste trei luni Theodora Bertzi, secretar de stat la Oficiul Roman pentru Adoptii, a mers la Bruxelles special pentru a-i informa ca raportul privind asa-numitele "pending cases" a fost deja finalizat, europarlamentarii au continuat cu stringerea semnaturilor. Declaratia celor cinci a fost aprobata in Parlamentul European si va ajunge pe masa Guvernului Romaniei in septembrie.
