Former Romanian PM Adrian Nastase was called as witness in the miners’ revolt case to testify on Monday about the events that unfolded in mid June 1990. Nastase said the revolt was an unfortunate and sad event but he did not point out a guilty person.

Ion Diaconescu, leader of the Romanian Peasants Party in early ‘90s, was also called to testify in the same case. Diaconescu said that the former president Ion Iliescu and the Communist Party descendants were to blame for the wrongdoings of the miners' revolt 16 years ago.
