UPDATE “Vlad Voiculescu is morally guilty of the death of the Romanian taken to Belgium”, accuses the PSD deputy Sorin Grindeanu: “Only for this case you had to resign if you had honor and dignity”.
“Minister Vlad Voiculescu did not even care about this case (of the man from Constanța, badly burned, who died in Belgium – no.) Until this morning, when the tragic news came. Only then did he begin to do what he knew best – to run away from responsibility. Minister, you are the main moral culprit for the death of this Romanian. Although you knew that in such a situation the transfer in 24, maximum 48 hours, to a high-performance hospital is vital, you stayed for nine days with a burnt man that you walked all over Romania. Only for this case you had to resign if you had honor and dignity “, says Sorin Grindeanu.
He states that, after the Social Democrats announced that they were submitting the motion, “a Mr. Voiculescu appeared with the message
“I understand that USR PLUS defends its colleague that whatever you do in 50 days you have a kind of immunity. Is this the new way of doing politics? ”, Concludes Grindeanu.
UPDATE The Minister of Health, Vlad Voiculescu, stated that the motion against him, that “it was probably written before he became minister” and then waited for the right moment. “You made fun of my work,” Voiculescu accuses.
Voiculescu says he is being asked to take responsibility for the disaster at the Matei Balş National Institute, although he was a minister for several days at the time of the tragedy.
“I am asked to take responsibility for what happened in a COVID hospital run for almost 30 years by your colleague, by the colleague of those who initiated this motion, by Dr. Adrian Streinu Cercel, in a city run by the last 12 years of your colleagues, Mr. Oprescu, Mrs. Firea. These are the people, all from PSD who had the audacity today to talk about hiring “, says Voiculescu.
The Minister of Health told the PSD that they probably started writing the motion before he was appointed, then waited for the right moment.
“You probably started writing the motion to me before you became a minister. You waited for a tragedy to happen to blame me for all the disaster you left behind. It won’t work. (…) I found the health system in Romania much worse than I left it. You made fun of almost everything I left in 2016 and it was a start. Repeat. You made fun of almost everything we did in 2016 (…). You made fun of my work “, Voiculescu added.
The Chamber of Deputies debates the simple motion submitted by PSD against the Minister of Health, Vlad Voiculescu.
The simple motion, entitled “Incompetence and lack of commitment kill! Vlad Voiculescu, a danger for the health and life of Romanians “, was signed by 109 social-democratic deputies and submitted to the plenary of the Chamber last week.
In the motion, the Social Democrats demand Voiculescu’s resignation because, in the time that has elapsed since the beginning of his term, they have seen “as much incoherence, lack of professionalism and commitment as has not been seen in the last 30 years.” .
“Human casualties, hospitals on fire, chaos in vaccinations, collapse in the public health system and lies in testing and reporting! And a lot of indifference, indolence, arrogance and defiance on the part of the one who should take care of the health and safety of his citizens. It’s already too much! This minister has become a real danger to the health of Romanians. We have to vote for this minister to leave “, it is shown in the text of the motion.
The signatories of the simple motion also accuse that, instead of the “fast” and “vigorous” measures to correct “everything you criticized when you were in the Opposition”, the Romanian citizens received a “package with accusations about the past” and a package with “promises about the future”, but nothing about the present or how problems can be solved now.
The simple motion is only advisory. Unlike the motion of censure that leads to the fall of the Government, the simple motion has the effect only of addressing a political warning in order to remedy an erroneous situation without creating on the part of the Government the obligation to respect it.
