This website is managed by the friends and family of Alexander Adamescu, a German citizen and legal resident of the United Kingdom who is the victim of political persecution by Romania.
The Friends of Alexander Adamescu is a volunteer-led organisation which seeks to:
- Raise awareness of the persecution of Alexander and his family by the Romanian government for the ‘crime’ of exercising their right to free speech
- Highlight the breakdown of the rule of law in Romania, the politicisation of its judiciary and the corruption of its anti-corruption drive
- Call for reform of the European Arrest Warrant to ensure no other EU citizen suffers in the same way.
“I am appalled by the treatment my friend Alexander Adamescu and his father have received at the hands of the Romanian government.
He and his family have been subjected to outrageous political persecution purely for the ‘crime’ of exercising their right to free speech. This cannot be allowed to continue. If the British authorities send Alexander back to Romania on the strength of a flawed European Arrest Warrant, he will face an unfair trial and the certainty of many years in a squalid jail cell away from his wife and three young children here in the UK.
The European Arrest Warrant is subject to abuse and whether we Brexit or Remain it needs to be overhauled.
I urge anyone who believes in the rule of law, justice and fairness, and the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise, to join me in speaking out against this outrage.
Please read the background to this case then please sign the petitions on this website. I’m a pensioner living on a council estate, I can’t do much by myself but together we can make our voices heard and bring an end to this injustice.” – Chris Hartup
