“Taking an excuse for the centuries-old presence of flatterers in the various royal courts, Todoran ironically describes the activity and behavior of the poet Adrián Poonescu, and othersHe concludes that he could have a detrimental effect on his supporters.

In April 1984, Doreen Todoran applied for immigration. After being refused, he wrote a note to him in early August Ceauand othersescuFrom which we quote:

“Nearly half a century ago, in a situation similar to mine, I am the writer Afghani Zamytin He wrote these lines Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin: «The author of these lines, a man sentenced to the maximum penalty, appeals to you with a request to reduce this sentence». It was the ultimate punishment, Your Excellency, for not being able to publish or even being able to write in the midst of a reality that was increasingly hostile and incomprehensible to him, as an artist and as a human being. The commutation of the sentence, His Excellency the Minister, was to agree to go into exile. And he got it right away, thanks to his intervention Maxim Gorky. Although I cannot call upon Maxim Gorky’s good offices – we don’t even have that, and I don’t know if I would ask him to intervene anyway – it is hard for me, Your Excellency, to believe that this was what a Soviet writer said and the citizen was passing on to Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin during the most terrible horror that could deny your verdict, today, in 1984, of a Romanian writer and citizen. Because it’s okay to hope and act like we do 1984 Don’t look like his George Orwell“.

Radu Ioanid wrote that in the investigation files of Tudoran there are 15 pieces of information dated 1982-1985 from Mihai Botez, which were presented to the lieutenant colonel. Marian Yurichi. Nine are signed, and the rest are Marian Yurichi reports about his conversations with Todoran. We quote from the writings of historian Radu Iwanid:

From report to report Mihai Botís’ consciousness gradually deteriorates, and the discrete account of the benevolent and scrupulous witness disappears in the first report (very similar, in fact, to the reports given by Theodore Fornico on Silvio Brocan) in favor of accurate information about Doreen Todoran, but also about Doreen Todoran’s activity Some U.S. diplomats stationed in Bucharest.Finally, Botiz’s statement of February 2, 1983, about the same—”roaming foreign embassies in Bucharest and the presence of diplomats for about 15 years”—in the case of Doreen Todoran indicates that he had a longstanding relationship with at least two directives security managementţfor the state: Anti-spyware And the to spy“.

In 2010, Doreen Todoran admitted that he couldn’t find an explanation for what Mihai Botiz had done, except that his friend was playing a gameUh and othersWas hoping to do itand othersrods, even if and othersHe knew the system was invincible. Todoran does not want to believe that Mihai Botiz betrayed him, even though he has all the data needed to do so. “Mihai, concerned about what worries me, provides all sorts of details to Marian Yurichi about my condition (I sleep little, poorly, etc.), as well as a medical report for my daughter (stomach problems, skin disease, etc.). Exactly what Securitate needs To burn me, they say, butt exactly where my skin was thinnest. The information in these notes is very accurate. Can I be sure Mihai has them in their face as Marian Yurichi says? No.”
