The war against credits continues to attract more and more soldiers: the bigger the number, the higher the negotiation power with banks, one newspaper reads on Tuesday. Elsewhere in the news, tomorrow, Wednesday is protest day with over 20,000 people expected in Bucharest. Last but not least, A Rroma police officer detached in France to help their French counterparts deal with Rroma felons.
Evenimentul Zilei reads that the credit war gathers more and more soldiers in the fight against banks and their attempt to force banks to give in. Trials against banks start to gain ground after more and more clients decide to sign contracts with lawyers on the matter.
According to clients, trials will start in less than two weeks. Against BCR, one of the biggest banks in Romania, there are about 500 clients that want to sue the bank. BCR clients’ representatives Daniela Matei declared that clients have a problem with the interest rates and with the fact that the latest Governmental Ordinance was interpreted in the wrong way by banks.
Bancpost clients declared that they will attempt mediation with the bank because they fear more serious problems. There are 100 people who submitted all documentation requested by lawyers.
The newspaper reads that the more clients, the cheaper the costs of the trial: for example, for 150 people group, the lawyer's costs are 200 euro plus VAT per person. The number will drop proportionally with the increase in the number of persons.
Wednesday is protest day, Gandul reads. Over 20,000 people are expected on Wednesday on a protest that will stop traffic on some main roads downtown Bucharest. Police officers recommend drivers to avoid Victoriei Square, Lasca Catargiu boulevard, Aviatorilor Boulevard, Magheru Boulevard and Victoriei way.
Traffic will be restricted in these main boulevards to ensure that the protest goes on smoothly.
Rroma origin police officer Grigoras Parvu is an inspector at the Criminal Investigation Service at district 4 police department. He grew up in Bucharest and learned romanes in the neighborhood because in his family nobody spoke the language.
He graduated the Military high school and then the Police Academy. Earlier this month, Romanian Interior minister Vasile Blaga agreed with his French counterparts that France needs support in its fight against Romanian felons. Ten police officers will join the other four Romanian officers already in France for three months.
Grigoras Parvu was recommended to leave because he knows romanes, French and has knowledge about the Rroma. However, he said that in France Romanians do not commit so many felonies as other nationalities.
