Survey: Death Penalty, No Citizenship for Roma

One in two Romanians would vote for the reinstatement of the death penalty in Romania, whilst only 42 percent would vote against it, reveals a recent survey. Also, 55 percent of Romanians would vote in favour of revoking the Romanian citizenship of all the Gipsies found guilty of crimes in Western Europe.

32 percent of the Romanians questioned think that this measure would be inappropriate. And only 46 percent of the survey’s subjects would vote against the revoking of citizenship in the case of Hungarians nationals who claim authonomy.

The last execution was carried out in Romania on December the 25th 1989, when Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu were killed by firing squad. Immediately afterwards, the death penalty was abolished.
