press release, 25 June 2013 by Emanuel Langhoff
Friday 14 June 2013 was Gregorian Bivolaru sentenced to 6 years in prison for sex with a minor.
The judgment goes against the Swedish Supreme Court's decision on 11 October 2005 to assign Bivolaru political asylum in Sweden based on fear for his safety and well-being of an extradition to his country.
Main Prosecutor Anette Swedow declared on 21 October 2005: "The final decision is based on that with a surrender Bivolaru to Romania risking that he will be deported, persecuted, because of the spiritual aspects he uses in yoga movement."
The trial in Romania has lasted 8 years, moved from court to court and gone about 3 times after two acquittals because the prosecution was not an acquittal of Bivolaru the right message to send to the public. Bivolaru case was a key issue for the corrupt rulers of Romania, which is a disgrace to a modern European legal community. The judgment merely confirms the growing distrust of the country's legal system among human rights organizations, European parliamentarians and other opinion.
Bivolaru has been pursued by the Romanian authorities and its notorious secret service Securitate since the '80s when he started to teach yoga, which was illegal in the communist country.There was fabricated false evidence against him, his apartment was ildpåsat and there were several other attacks on him and people from yoga movement.
Bivolaru spent several years in a Romanian prison and a brutal measures of dissidents - opponents of the system. After Ceausescu's demise continued crackdown by the same corrupt administration and the same fall an Intelligence behind the false facade of democracy.
Bivolaru convicted of sex with a seventeen-year-old Madalina Dumitru. The course speaks for itself: The 18 March 2004, Madalina Dumitru taken from her home early in the morning of the riot and sortmaskeret gendarmerie.
During strong mental and physical pressure she was forced gynecological examination in front of the entire Romanian press and to sign a statement, which has subsequently been the prosecution's main evidence 'in an attempt to incriminate yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru.
Both Madalina Dumitru and her family have condemned the authorities' treatment of her and expressed public sympathy with Bivolaru. The decisive argument was that Bivolaru would have abused its position as her teacher, though she never attended a single class he taught, or for that matter had a relationship with him. Madalina Dumitru was even present in the courtroom during the last hearing on Friday 14 June.
The only victim in this case is Bivolaru. It is now known that he was doomed from the start when it got out of by intelligence service from the beginning had called persecution of Bivolaru for 'Operation Christ'. With judgment in hand on the rumænkse authorities plotting now to hope that political pressure on Sweden from Romanian politicians, the media and government officials can lead to disclosure of Bivolaru to the home country.
The disclosure will bring Bivolaru a very uncertain future in the iron fist of a brutal Romanian penitentiary. Besides Bivolaru and other members of the yoga movement certainty is in danger, judgment is also an expression of the whole European legal system's general guarantee that we as citizens can not be persecuted, exiled or eliminated because of our spiritual or political beliefs are strong distress.
The media and especially the entertainment industry has for years in several European countries including Denmark played with the abuses and persecution of yoga practitioners that follow Bivolaru learning system. Now it's time for the media who still have a sense of fairness and objectivity into character and shows that the good journalist can still make a difference by examining Bivolaru and MISA-matter fully.
