Vasile Paraschiv on the crimes of communism

Civil rights activist Vasile Paraschiv was one of the most prominent opponents of the Ceausescu regime. He tells Ovidiu Simonca it was good that Romanian President Traian Basescu condemned the crimes of communism at the end of 2006, but more must be done. "It is not enough to condemn communism theoretically. We need a commission made up of victims of the communist dictatorship, and they should propose a law that would allow all victims to bring their torturers to justice. … We need a law that that would enable us to convict all those Securitate members who injured the Romanian people. This law must not be as unclear as the one that the Romanian Authorities for Analysis of the Securitate files (CNSAS) has worked on up to now, and which was recently declared unconstitutional."
