"I have nothing with the ethnic Germans and respect a minority in Romania, but the reaction of some in the country and abroad requires me to explain in detail what I said yesterday in the Antena 3 program. I said then that I The press read that the Forum Democrat of the Germans of Sibiu is the continuation of the German ethnic group (fascist organization) We have confirmed the appeal of the FDGS to action with the request for: I also add the judgment of the court, in which the court requests FDGS and Question: Have the City Hall of Sibiu (Mayor Klaus Werner Iohannis), the City Council of Sibiu or FDGS appealed for 15 days against this decision, as the court decides that they were entitled? ", wrote Liviu Pop on his Facebook page.
He also filed the petition to sue Sibiu's city hall and the court's decision.
A German official, Bernd Fabritius, called the government a position on Friday, while FDGR called on the leaders of the PSD to outline Pop's claims after he categorized the German forum as a "Nazi organization".
A high representative of the ruling Romanian party insults the German minority organization in an unacceptable way. Liviu Pop, representative of the Social Democrats in Romania, chairman of the senate committee for education and former minister of education, called the organization of a national minority recognized in Romania, the German community in Romania, in a public interview. For example, a deplorable libel campaign remains unacceptable. For some time, the German minority in Romania has been slandered in pro-government media and has been politically insulted to damage the image of President Klaus Johannis, a member of this minority. The fact that the attacks are continued by high representatives of the ruling Social Democratic party is unacceptable and requires a firm conviction! I asked the Romanian government for a position ", wrote Bernd Fabritius, the representative of the German federal government for displaced persons and national minorities in Germany, on his Facebook account.
The Democratic Forum of the Germans in Romania (FDGR) reacted to the statements of Liviu Pop. FDGR calls PSD leader Liviu Dragnea and Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă to demarcate the "calomnias" that have been demoted by some Social Democrats.
"The Democratic Forum of Germans in Romania strongly condemns the ordinary defamatory debts of PSD Senator Liviu Pop on Thursday evening, according to which FDGR would be the continuation of the German group of the Nazis in Romania.The FDGR is the legitimate representative of the German minority on the basis of the Romanian constitution and the legislation in force, with a status approved by the Romanian courts and registered in the register of non-governmental organizations The FDGR is represented in the parliament and in the governmental structures of Romania: We ask the PSD in public, its president, Liviu Dragnea, the chairman of the Chamber of Deputies and the Prime Minister of Romania, Viorica Vasilica Dăncilă, to publicly demarcate the slander that some members of this party have accused and debated. , FDGR chairman Paul-Juergen Porr said in a press release published on Facebook.
The USR also claims that, according to Liviu Pop, the German forum is the continuation of the German ethnic group, "a Nazi organization", the PSD senator held an anti-European speech.
"USR is in solidarity with the Democratic Forum of Germans in Romania and condemns the statements of PSD Senator Liviu Pop, which shows an illiberal and anti-European speech." USR calls for respect for the rights of all minorities in Romania ", says USR the quoted social network.
PSD Senator Liviu Pop said on Thursday that President of Romania, Klaus Iohannis, led an organization that is a continuation of a Nazi-German forum.
"I think at least as many grams of national awareness as Mr. President Iohannis, because the postponement of the budgetary rectification actually means that certain government agencies do not pay the money and that the other public institutions do not add money, which only leads to the budget deficit. I have to say that he (Klaus Iohannis-nr) commits a hypocritical accusation, the perspective of August 23, and the prospect of his former dignity, that of the president of a continuation of a forum … of the group … of the Nazi organization, he led the German forum (Iohannis nr), who was the follower of that group we know was publicly convicted against … ", said Liviu Pop Thursday night in Antena 3.
After the allegations PSD Senator did not want to accept them, claiming that he had taken information from the internet.
"That's not what I say, others say, I read it in the press, I've seen it clearly The German ethnic group was a Nazi organization, right? The German ethnic group was a Nazi organization for the conviction of war crimes in When the German forum is not the follower of the German ethnic group, I officially wait for these things, I said what I read from the net, but on August 23, with statements like this, and in the Hundred Year, it seems I'm a bit shocked by the head of the state, who must be a mediator, "said the Social Democrat Senator," added Pop.
