SPECIALISTS: "THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT HAS CHANGED THE RULES OVER NIGHT"

     * Some lawyers claim that there is no limit to the arguments that the CCR can bring when making a decision
       In the ruling of the Constitutional Court of Romania, (CCR) concerning the law of conversion, a grave mistake has been made, some specialists claim, who stress that the CCR has also invoked the principle of bicameralism when it has ruled that the law is unconstitutional, whereas the Cioloș government had not asked for the verification of the compliance with that in its notification.
     According to some lawyers, the Constitutional Court has changed the rules overnight, because its responsibilities are not to refer the matter to itself when it comes to the violation of constitutional principles, only to investigate the exceptions raised by other parties concerning draft laws.
     Other lawyers have told us, however, that the CCR can resort to any arguments to justify its decision, as long as the arguments in question concern the challenged articles.
     In his notification, the Cioloș government mentions a number of principles, including that of the relativity of effects, non-retroactivity, of equality and non-discrimination. The Government has also warned that banks may sue Romania through the ICSID (The Arbitration Court in Washington), and has mentioned the risk of legislative, financial and macroeconomic instability, as well as the potential losses in the banking system.
     * CHF borrowers are not letting the fact that the Law of Conversion is unconstitutional demoralize them
     After just one day from the decision of the CCR that the law of conversion at the original exchange rate was unconstitutional, CHF borrowers have started looking for new strategies to obtain the partial shift of the burden that they have had to share since the end of 2015, when the CHF/RON exchange unexpectedly skyrocketed.
     On the Facebook page of the group of CHF bank borrowers (GCCC), the borrowers are drawing up statistics, filling up submission forms, posting proposals, and are adamantly stating that they are not quitting the fight, but instead they are going forward.
     "We need to recover from yesterday's shock, (ed. note: Tuesday) and we need to start rethinking our strategy and our manner of organization", wrote Cristian Dan, one of the administrators of the GCCC.
     The first goal of the borrowers is to get a hearing with PM Sorin Grindeanu, to talk about the situation that they are going through. Debtors have recently sent the PM a letter in which they have requested a meeting on the subject.
     GCCC representatives have also told us that protests would be an option, but not one that they would currently use.
     One of the proposals made by the group is that, on February 24th, the day of the Romanian Dragobete feast, all those who want to negotiate with the banks should submit notifications requesting fairer contracts and the giving in payment.
     "I don't think it would be so hard for us to show up February 24th, notification in hand, at our respective lenders. This seems to be the last, or maybe the only chance we have left", Mr. Dan further wrote.
     Another CHF borrower made the following proposal: "I am asking for the solidarity of the group in bringing a criminal proposal against the former prime-minister (ed. note: Dacian Cioloș) and against those who have countersigned the Emergency Government Ordinances for the prorogation of the date of the coming into effect of the Law no. 151/2015 concerning the procedure of the insolvency of individuals, in order to commit the offense of abuse in office, for the culpable violation of the job duties. By failing to carry out or by inadequately carrying out the job duties, [the PM] has caused us losses and has harmed our rights and legitimate interests, namely the right of defending our assets against creditors and the right for a turnaround of the financial situation, as well as supporting us in escaping the state of insolvency that we are in".
     Cristian Dan reiterates the idea that it would be best for people to turn to the Center for the Alternative Resolution of Lawsuits in the Banking System (CSALB). He posted the following yesterday on the GCCC Facebook page: "My advice is not to take any action - especially if you want to keep your home after all - until you ask the bank to negotiate. And you should do that through the CSALB procedure, because it is free of charge and the conciliators of the CSALB are professionals. (...) In the current context we will try to talk to every institution out there, to "save" whoever we can still save out of all the people that do not have the financial means to bring a lawsuit, supported by good lawyers. (...) Please remember that the procedure is free of charge and it is now being used in developed countries as well. Such a conciliation procedure, in Germany costs about 500 Euros".
     The Center for the Alternative Resolution of Litigations in the Banking Sector was created last spring, in order to resolve the lawsuits between banks and customers. According to its management, the CSALB seeks to be "a viable alternative to restore the balance between consumers and the banking and financial institutions". The Center is funded by banks, but the conciliators will not be paid directly by banks, and will instead be paid by the Center, regardless of the resolution they issue, whether it's in favor of the customer or of the bank, Alexandru Păunescu, the president of the College for the Coordination of the CSALB explained last year.
     The SAL Center is led by a Coordination College led made up of five members, one from the NBR, the ANPC, the Romanian Banking Association and the consumer associations, and an independent member, selected by the other four.

     Even without the court ruling rendered in first instance by the High Court of Cassation and Justice in the lawsuit of the fictitious hiring at the Child Protection Department of Teleorman the focus on getting all the institutional levers under the - informal, but all the more important - authority of Liviu Dragnea. But, after his conviction on June 21, this trend will speed up. But only through this kind of concentration of power can the president of the Chamber of Deputies hope to change not only the balance of power - which is already favorable to him, even though nothing is final in politics -, but the legislation based on which he has been sentenced, so that he gets exonerated of any legal responsibility. Or, when the powers of the state are concentrated in the hands of one man, democracy, even though it may be only a façade, moves aside to be replaced by autocracy. And in Romania, the temptation of autocracy, hidden under the veil of illiberalism, is more powerful than it has ever been, after the fall of communism. Could this be just an accident owed to the meteoric apparition of Liviu Dragnea?  click here to read the entire article

     "It is a good thing that the public doesn't understand the functioning of our banking and monetary system, because otherwise I think there would be a revolution in the streets by dawn".
     HENRY FORD, founder of the American automotive industry

     Fed up with subsidizing the commercial banks with their own money, the Swiss, mobilized through the "Sovereign Money" initiative, have proposed the organization of a Referendum which will be held on Sunday, June 10th 2018 - is a historical referendum, revolutionary for the banking industry, of international resonance -, by which the initiators want to amend the Constitution, which would impose to the commercial banks to grant loans only within the limits of the bank's money, forbidding them to issue scrip money and ensuring the monopoly of the Confederation (of the Swiss state) on issuance of money free of debt.  click here to read the entire article

GABRIELA MIHAELA VOICILĂ, THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT MINISTER:
     Where there are many entrepreneurs there is creation, where there are many women entrepreneurs there is divine creation, says Gabriela Mihaela Voicilă, state secretary in the Ministry for the Business Environment, Trade and Entrepreneurship (MMACA). In her opinion, entrepreneurship means joy, a better situation, but less time for the family: "Taken together, entrepreneurship means achievements (...) Every one of us needs validation, for having built, having created something".  click here to read the entire article

IN THE ROMANIAN BANANA REPUBLIC...
     The urge "Mircea, act like you're working!", back in the days of the so-called revolution of December 1989, was brought back recently by a new "director".
     We are talking of course, about the meeting between NBR governor Mugur Isărescu, and a government "delegation" led by chamber of deputies chairman Liviu Dragnea, together with PM Viorica Dăncilă.
     Sources from within the PSD, quoted by ziare.com, have claimed that, "in the meeting with the NBR governor, Liviu Dragnea seemed to be looking for a way out, and he seems confused, as he didn't expect his decisions to lead to such effects in the economy".  click here to read the entire article

     Liviu Dragnea's insistence in moving the Romanian embassy from Tel Aviv, to Jerusalem, feeds an older, widespread confusion. Much older. Politically, Jerusalem has been divided from the first presence of the Judeans on the lands of the Palestinians, since back in the days of Abraham and Abimelec. "The indivisible Jerusalem" wanted by Benjamin Netanyahu is a spiritual creation.
     Definitely, pilgrims and locals claim that Jerusalem has a geography, meaning that the city would be compatible with the cardinal points and that is why Palestinians, Israelis and people overall, including those of the UN, EU and the US, speak about Eastern Jerusalem and Western Jerusalem, without anybody being surprised that that is happening at the center of the world, where the god of the Judeans began his creation, starting from the very rock from which later Archangel Gabriel raised Mohammed to visit Heaven, the same place of origin where one of the seven angels "and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God." (Apocalypse, 21: 10), where God is one of the same.  click here to read the entire article

     The dystopia of 2169 seems to be 151 years away from us, if we were to watch the American sci-fi movie "In Time", in which New Zealand screenwriter, director and producer New Zealand Andrew M. Niccol has imagined a world in which money has been replaced by the lifespan left and each individual over 25 years old (when they stop aging), are wearing a counter on their arm, displaying how much they have left to live; the economic system relies on transactions paid in lifespan - banks, loans, interest rates - the rich are storing billions of years, while the poor only have hours, minutes or seconds left and when their time is up they die suddenly, as if struck by a mace.  click here to read the entire article
