Haut niveau de pression externe sur la Roumanie. Les États-Unis et l'Union Européenne forcent pour la réouverture des adoptions internationales.

Copiii români aflati în dificultate fac obiectul unei atractii de nestavilit din partea politicienilor europeni si americani.jpgCeci est la traduction intégrale en anglais de l'article "PRESIUNI EXTERNE LA NIVEL ÎNALT - SUA şi UE forţează redeschiderea adopţiilor internaţionale" publié le 23 juillet 2009 dans le journal roumain "Jurnalul National".

High Level External Pressure.
USA and EU force reopening international adoptions.

 

Jurnalul National came into possession of an official document of the U.S. Congress, in which 8 senators and 13 members of the American Congress ask the Romanian Government, since May, to reopen international adoptions. In parallel, the Committee on the Rights of the Child has given the same "advice" following the presentation of the country report of Romania in Geneva on June 5.


American lobby by the hands of Ms. Hilary Clinton



Romania has become the target of pressure from some interest groups and some foreign NGOs that fight for more than about 5 years to re-open international adoptions from Romania.

In fact, foreigners require the changing of Law 273 of 2004, which brought the regulations necessary to resume international adoptions after a suspension of over three years by the moratorium since 2001. The new law, however, accepts that  children can only be adopted by foreigners who are relatives of the children.



Trafficking in children, unable to stop


Last week has come to light a new scandal concerning the illegal adoption of two Romanian minors in Italy, which has reopened the issue of international adoptions, a real battleground between the National Authority for Protection of Child Rights and several members of the European Commission, on the sidelines, and several private groups in the U.S. and EU which require reopening pressure through adoptions made at the highest level, from Western governments to the Romanian authorities. Exclusively Jurnalul National shows you an incredible document, bearing the letterhead U.S. Congress and signed by 20 U.S. senators and congressmen.



The letter, non published until, has been given to the Foreign Minister, Cristian Diaconescu, by U.S. Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, in May, when Diaconescu was at an official visit overseas. On top of that, although the document bears the heading U.S. Congress, the signatories declare to be members of a NGO, "The Congressional Coalition on Adoption".



Although the 21 signatories state functions congressmen and senators, they claim to be a simple group of American citizens who require a change to Law 273, which forbids international adoptions of Romanian children. The letter contains two misinformations: the number of children "adoptable" in the U.S. is not 60 thousand, but 129 thousand, according to international statistics, as regards the fate of 84 thousands of Romanian children, the figure is exaggerated, it includes all children who are included in the system of child protection, reintegration into their families or are in family care in Romania.



It has to be said that the Coalition, a private body whose members are senior U.S. politicians, is an initiative of Mary Landrieu, a signatory of the letter, the U.S. senator who has strongly demanded in recent years to resume adoptions from Romania.



In July 2006, when President Traian B?sescu visited the United States Senator Mary Landrieu introduced successfully, to vote in the U.S. Senate Resolution 359, which relates only to the ban on international adoptions by the Romanian authorities. And Hilary Clinton was involved in the issue of adoption of children from Romania and Croatia. In 1995, when she was the American First Lady, she spoke in favour of the adoption of 28 children, through the foundation of a Californian pastor, Wayne Coombs, whose organization, Adams Children's Fund, had no license for international adoptions.



ROMANIA FACES INTERNATIONAL OFFENSIVE


The same pressures have resulted in recommendations for the Child Protection Committee of the UN, made following the submission of the country in Geneva from June 5, which was submitted by the Romanian delegation headed by State Secretary Ileana Savu, director of the National Authority for Child Protection. It recognized that external attempts to change legislation forcing Romanian.

Despite bans in force, Ileana Savu leans towards a compromise with countries wishing to adopt children from Romania. "There were and there is pressure. The issue concerns us, but especially to the Romanian Adoptions Office. We have found a new system for national and international adoptions. If we claim we are an EU member state, then we must find mechanisms to control what happens to our children, even if it be adopted in other countries and is not abused. It is okay to forbid a law, that of adoption, so just because we want us. have been pressure from the 90s and are still pressures, especially for children who are already in other countries that can legally remain there, " he said Ileana Savu.

Foreign Minister Cristian Diaconescu, said, exclusively for the National Official, that Romania will keep its position on the issue of international adoptions under current law. He admitted meeting and veracity of the document received from Hilary Clinton in May, meeting with the foreign ministers of Hungary and Serbia, the last Saturday, from Timisoara. "Both in terms of regulations and how they have implemented and the international relations of Romania has not anything new, so it is clear that this view does not intend to make any change we" he said.


CHILDREN, INSTRUMENT OF POLITICAL BLACKMAIL



International adoptions have become a hot topic immediately after Romania suspended this procedure in 2001. Since then, several Western governments have pressed Romanian politicians for the reopening of such adoptions, particularly through non-governmental organizations, through American congressmen and French, Italian, Spaniard and Germans Euro-parliamentarians, but also by other EU Member States . For example, reopening the international adoptions was "2" on the agenda of talks between Romanian officials and former state secretary of the U.S., Colin Powell, before the acceptance of Romania into political NATO.



Another demonstration of force was made by Silvio Berlusconi, in 2003, when he forced the hand of then Prime Minister, Adrian Nastase, for adoption by Italy of 105 children, although the moratorium signed by Romania forbade this. Interest groups have used the accession to the European Union, to ask repeatedly, to agree with the adoption of children by families in other countries.



The European Commission did a tough battle to halt international adoptions, after it emerged many cases where children were abused or have become victims of trafficking in children. The corridors of these pressures and the European Commission’s fight with the "black market of international adoptions" by foreign NGOs and politicians have been disclosed by Roelie Post, who coordinated the work for child protection in Romania, for the European Commission between 1999 and 2006. The details of this fierce lobbying and blackmail to which Romania has been subject to re-open international adoptions are presented in her book, "Romania - For Export Only, the untold story of the Romanian orphans", a book that got no attention whatsoever in our country.

Les États-Unis demande à nouveau à la Roumanie la libre circulation (commerce) de ses enfants.

Le Congrès des États-Unis, c'est maintenant connu, a donné une lettre officielle au Ministre des Affaires Etrangères de la Roumanie alors qu'il était en visite de travail aux États-Unis en mai dernier, demandant la réouverture des adoptions intercontinentales en Roumanie.


Le fait que cette lettre officielle remise au Ministre Cristian Diaconescu par la Secrétaire d'État américaine Hillary Clinton a été signée par des personnes qui se déclarent membres d'une ONG, sous le nom de "Coalition du Congrès sur l'adoption", montre que même aujourd'hui, au plus haut niveau, le commerce des enfants masqué comme adoptions intercontinentales est admis aux États-Unis.

On "comprend" la position des autorités roumaines: 60 % des enfants abandonéns en Roumanie sont d'origine tziganes. Condamnés de toute façon à fréquenter les écoles pour retardés mentaux , à ne pas avoir de travail du fait de leur origine raciale et avoir une vie de misère à l'intérieur de la si "démocratique" UE ! ( Voir le rapport du PNUD sur les conditions de vie des Roms en Europe)
Et ce n'est pas la commission europpeenne qui ne sait vraiment pas quoi faire de cette encombrante minorité qui va en parler / à part évidemment saupoudrer des subsides sur le problème dans les pays les plus concernés ( Dont la Roumanie) sans vérifier où sont utilisés les subsides en question !
Il n'y a jamais eu de trafic avec les enfants roumains : Interpol interrogé à ce sujet a dit qu'aucune enqête de ce type n'avait concerné l'adoption en Roumanie. Mais la la calomnie et les discours verbieux de certains amis e la Baronne Nicolson continuent... C'est tellement commode .
Là bas en Roumanie des enfants qui auraient pu bénéficier d'une adoption , trouver des parents aimants en sont privés . La solitude affective sera leur lot . Tant pis pour eux . Et entre deux petits fours on continuera à répandre de fausses info pour accréditer que tout va bien dans le meilleur des mondes en zappant en plus sur le problème d'origine racial : ce ne sont pas les enfants qui vont être contrariants de toute façon , ils sont bien cachés rendus invisibles par les politiques.
Encore une autre rumeur à laquelle il faut tordre le cou: une petite fille italienne a obtenu non sans mal à rejoindre ses parents adoptifs en Italie et à quitter l'orphelinat de Ion Tiriac qui s'était conduit en digne ami de Nicholson c'est à dire en autocrate ( Voir le CR du jugement de la cour europeenne où les péripéties de cette affaire sont relatés: édifiant!!!)

A propos des Roms justement.
Comment l'Europe aborde-t-elle cette question ?

La question des Roms a beaucoup gagné en visibilité ces dernières années. En 2008, notamment, le sujet s’est retrouvé sur le devant de la scène européenne suite au controversé projet des autorités italiennes, visant le recensement des Roms à partir d’empreintes digitales.

The truth of what happened to Romania’s orphans.
By Brian Douglas. Children's Rights and Human Rights. August 5, 2009.

I recently read an article by freelance Journalist Stephen Maughan who is recently graduated from the National Council for journalist is the UK titled “What happened to Romania’s Orphans” and the article is far from the truth both in content and stated figures. I have therefore written the truth of events in this article as the public has a right to know the truth and can then for themselves be the judges.

It is fair to state, as does Mr Maughan that few can forget the Romanian orphanages of the early 90s, but Romanian childcare has come far forward since those times 20 years ago and is now internationally accepted as a role model for other developing Countries. This is a fact proved by the fact that Turkey, which has suffered many years of problems in the domain of childcare, has chosen the well-respected Romanian model to reform its childcare rather than the UK, French or US models.

Journalist Hilary Rose was correct in her assertions when she rightly stated, “One of the most unsettling facts about the children in Romanian orphanages is that most of them weren’t orphans.”

Here is the truth as the vast majority of these children had parents to go home to. Others had relatives to go home to. There were in fact very few true orphans in reality and this is well accepted by those involved in childcare within the Country plus agreed with by international including UK childcare experts.

16. 10. 09. Romanian Government opposes resumption of international adoptions.

Yesterday the Romanian Secretary of State for Adoptions, Bogdan Panait, handed in a proposal to re-open intercountry adoption.

Bad news for the Adoption Lobby, because today the Romanian Prime Minister announced NOT to change the adoption law.

The Romanian government opposes resumption of international adoptions after receiving a memorandum from the Romanian Adoption Office (ORA) proposing their resumption.

"The current government has not debated the memorandum and therefore has not made a decision. Acting Prime Minister Emil Boc believes the present laws on international adoptions are in accord with international legislation and European standards," a government statement today (Fri) said.

ORA State Secretary Bogdan Panait had no comment on the government's statement but said the document had been submitted only to ask for its view on the issue.

Panait said ORA had proposed international adoptions only in cases of repeated failures of national adoption attempts.

The document said that there were still certain classes of "hard to adopt" children, for whom the current legal framework did not allow identification of adequate and permanent care solutions.

Those classes included children older than six, children belonging to ethnic minorities, children with serious medical problems, and groups of more than two siblings who could not be reintegrated into their families, for whom Romanian foster families could not be found and who would therefore remain in the special protection system until they were 18, according to the document.
