The death of the Libyan colonel, Muammar Gadddafi, has been covered by most dailies.
Under the headline “An Enslaver’s Death”, the Adevărul reveals details about the last moments of the longest-lived enslaver in Africa and summarizes the international officials’ responses after finding out the news.
Therewith, the article comprises a chronology “of all the enslavers to whom supreme power brought death”.
As for the responses, the daily reveals an exclusive interview granted by the former Foreign Minister of Romania, Ştefan Andrei, who has been filling this positions since before 1989. The former dignitary does not believe that Gaddafi’s death was an accident and claims that “Libyan leader’s death smells like oil”.
The Evenimentul Zilei reveals the forecasters’ opinion according to which “the removal of the former enslaver from Tripoli from the political scene will, certainly, stir riots among Arabians”.
Moreover, the same daily adds some information about “the first face-off between Huidu and the prosecutors” and asks rhetorically “whether it was about overtaking or side-slip” touching the hypotheses analyzed by the authorities about the accident in which the TV producer, Şerban Huidu, was involved.
Furthermore, the daily reveals the way in which Şerban Huidu’s today hearing will be developing at the Prosecutor’s Office under the High Court of Appeal in Başov, a procedure explained by the Dean of the Bar in Iaşi.
“How one could save 2,363 lives a year” is what România Liberă found out and emphasizes, according to statistics, that “the building of highways and ringways can save many lives
The daily gives some actual examples for the assertions made about the decline of the number of accidents after putting into use the ring roads in Sibiu and Piteşti.
We end with the Jurnalul Naţional which reports the interview granted by the Head of the Directorate for Road Police, Lucian Diniţă.
According to the last report issued by the European Commission, he is pleased with the fact that Romania was nine places ranked up regarding the road safety but added to complaints the “legislative frame adapted to the Romanian style”.
