It is with shame that I am writing you this letter, letting you know that the Romanian Orthodox Church is appealing to the Romanian government in order to forbid and close all private cemeteries, leading to a monopoly that will prevent consumer’s freedom of choice and that will nullify the benefits a free market presents to its customers.
I don’t know how it is in other countries, but in Romania one must pay for the graveyard lot. As such, there’s the Romanian Orthodox Church wanting to have monopoly on this “industry”, when a lot is rented for 500 euro for 25 years, while there are other entrepreneurs offering better and cheaper services.
Moreover, although the Romanian Orthodox Church is mainly state-sponsored and tax-free, it refuses to offer its services to burials taking place outside their owned cemeteries.
For these, mr. John Dalli, I ask you to take the appropriate measures to protect and strengthen the rights of the Romanian customers, as delicate as this matter might be.
Ms. Ing. Robin Molnar
Dacă vreți să faceți un bine pentru țară, trimiteți-i domnului
John Dalli mailul de mai sus, cu modificările corespunzătoare vouă.
Update din partea biroului domnului John Dalli:
Dear Mr Molnar,
Commissioner Dalli would like to thank you for your email below.
I wish to inform you that I have forwarded it to the office of Ms Viviane Reding, the Vice-President of the Commission in charge of Justice and Fundamental Rights as the issue raised falls under her responsibility.
I trust you will soon receive an answer from her Cabinet.
