Mihai submitted before the Court of Appeal, on Thursday 12 May, an announcement to Libertatea: “Yes, justice has been served, because we who have suffered in this tragedy will not do justice on this planet. But at least justice has been done, we know one thing and that gives us hope that we may not live in a country as unnatural as we think.”
Too lenient penalties for state employees
Mihai, a well-known documentary filmmaker, was at Colectiv on the night of October 30, 2015 to film the Goodbye to Gravity concert. He believes there is an imbalance when it comes to law enforcement.
“Justice according to these criminal laws has been achieved in Romania, as it is. As I expected, in Romania, civil servants are less responsible than ordinary citizens who commit crimes, and the criminal law protects them more”Mihai declared for freedom.
Beduni insulted his parents, who found him guilty
Relatives are also relatives of those who died or were maimed in the Collective tragedy, a very light sentence that contributes to the accumulated pain.
When the former mayor of Sector 4, Cristian Popescu Bedoni, discovered his sentence, he packed his bags and went to Rahova Prison, located in Sector 5, which he “nurtured” in 2020.
Bedoni posted on Facebook: “If these parents think I killed their children, may God help them“.
Alexandru Hoggia died in Vienna
Present at the family home of Narcissus and Mihaela Hogia, at the moment the court decisions were announced, Libertatea reporters were obsessed with the reaction of the parents who, according to Collective, had lost their son Alex.
“Does this curse us? Wonderful! This one curses us!‘ replied the father.

It is also believed that the sentences were too lenient for the officials, for whom the judges were not to take on their serious enough responsibility.
“The owners received their punishment. But if the state, through the staff of City Hall, did its job and did not authorize the club to operate until it had met all the conditions required by law, our children would have been safe.Narcis Hogia told Libertatea.
