Thousands of people went to the streets in Romania’s biggest cities, as well as in other European and American cities, in support of a Romanian family living in Norway, whose children had been taken by the Norwegian social services.

The Norwegian authorities already opened the international adoption procedure for the five children of the Bodnariu family.

More than 2,000 people gathered in Bucharest’s Victoriei Square on Saturday, with similar protests being organized in other cities across the country such as Cluj-Napoca, Constanta, and Timisoara, reports local Mediafax. The protesters said they wanted the social investigation in Norway to be done faster and the Romanian authorities to be more actively involved in resolving this case so that the family could be reunited.

Thousands of people also protested in front of Norway’s Embassies in the US, Canada, Ireland, Spain, the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Denmark. With banners saying “Norway, stop child kidnapping,” “Reunite the Bodnariu family,” and “Children belong to the family,” the protestors asked Norway to stop what they called the abuses in this case and return the children to the Bodnariu family.

Romanian IT specialist Marius Bodnariu and his Norwegian wife Ruth Bodnariu, who is a nurse, have lived in Norway for the past 10 years. In mid-November last year, the Norwegian child protection services (Barnevernet) took the family’s five children and placed them in three separate foster homes.

The Norwegian authorities took over the children after receiving a complaint from the principal of Vevring School, where two of the children went. In this complaint, the principal “expressed her concerns regarding the girls’ religious upbringing, her understanding that the girls were being disciplined at home, and that she considered the parents and grandmother to be radical Christians,” according to a press release of the Bodnariu family.

Norwegian Police abductions

After arresting and interrogating the parents, the Norwegian authorities decided not to return the children to their family and accused the parents of physically abusing their children.

At the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ request, the National Authority for Child Protection and Adoption in Romania started a social investigation and decided to ask the Norwegian authorities to place the children in the family of the paternal uncle living in Romania.

Last Friday, there was a new talk at the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the ambassador of Norway in Bucharest, Tove Bruvik Westberg. During this talk, “both parties reiterated the importance of supported cooperation in Bodnariu family’s case,” reads the Ministry’s statement.

The Romanian ambassador to Norway will also hold a talk with representatives of the Norwegian Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion on January 13.

  1. MUST LISTEN TO THE VIDEO ON YOUTUBE, A FORMER WORKER REPORTING THE DARK SIDE OF CSPs (aka, Barnevernet in Norway):

    “This is common practice in Norway but none of them has the backbone to admit it.” Following is a very courageous man revealing the draconic policies and highly injurious acts of Norway’s Barnevernet. Video reveals incredible facts about the “inner sanctum” of these agencies:

    https://youtu.be/HbMmWryH0vE [Click on this link and listen to the incredible testimony]

    “They rather blame families and pretend that they have a blind trust in Barnevernet. These Norwegians that have very light punishments for rapes against children have the audacity to pretend that there government work in the best interest of the children. Many times the children who are confiscated from the parents end up to be sexually abused in foster homes.”

  2. NOTICE: THIS BLOGGER SHOULD ALLOW VITAL INFORMATION FREELY–NOT GET IN A MOOD OF SUPPRESSING IT, AS OTHER ROMANIAN BLOGGERS DO OUT THERE ON THE NET. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW AND TO HEAR ABOUT THESE EVILS WHICH HOVERS ABOVE THE HEADS OF MANY CHILDREN, that arise every day in Norway and elsewhere! Here, I will post a vital information for the Romanians in diaspora to hear and file their protests with Norway Government. Here is that important video on the youtube:

  3. THE INFLICTION OF INTENTIONAL EMOTIONAL DISTRESS AND IRREPARABLE HARM [EMOTIONAL TRAUMA] ON PARENTS OF CHILDREN CONFISCATED BY NORWAY STATE’S BARNEVERNET FROM THE FAMILIES SANCTUARIES…

    The Norway’s totalitarian Rules and Regulations surrounding State-sponsored confiscation of Bodnarius’ family members (children) from their family sanctuary, purport to sanction the use of religious-driven phrases and ideologies, by parents, as “abuse of children”. And on this charge alone, the Barnevernet may confiscate the children from that family–as in the case of the Bodnarius. Expressing religiously-nuanced phrases and any such sentences orally to children, in Norway, it surely attracts the wrath of the State-sponsored confiscation of children from affected families by the totalitarian Barnevernet. Even trivial “manifestations” [singing a little religious song] by parents or children are perceived as “abuse”, and on those charges alone, the reprehensible and odious Barnevernet may confiscate the children from that family–as in the case of the Bodnarius family. Other trivial “manifestations” can be gleaned from the videos on youtube or complaints written on Internet by the emotionally traumatized parents.

    Norway State-sponsored invasion of parental sanctuary and infringing on God-ordained authority conferred upon parents is only one drastic part of the manifest violation of international human rights. Every Constitution of our modern democracies declare parental authority and family sanctuary as an inviolable principle of jurisprudence upon which society depends. In United States of America, under the Fourth Amendment’s Bill of Rights, even an “expectation of privacy” deserves protection by the federal Courts, in addition to the “right to be secure in the houses, papers and effects”– the society’s family’s sanctuary, and keystone of the governmental structure which was contemplated by the Constitution and Common Law.

    Norway State-sponsored intentional infliction of emotional distress is the other drastic aspect of violation of the international human rights. The invasion of family sanctuary and confiscation of its minor members (children) by the State-sponsored child services agency is cognizant in all democracies as a “severe emotional distress”–that is extreme and outrageous conduct that causes suffering such that no reasonable person should have to endure it. A mother (or father, or both) who experiences and witnesses the forceful separation from her children by State-sponsored actors, which by their abusive and negligent conduct, inflict severe emotional distress is legally entitled to recover (compensated) for her “emotional trauma” and any bodily accompanying injury!

    Finally, there are 13 important human rights which Norway has violated–and must compensate Bodnariu family, and many other victims, for the harm inflicted on them. Following are these human rights violated by Norway:

    (1) European Convention on Human Rights, released on 04/11/1950, Art. 6 (para. 2), Art. 8, Art.9, Art.13 &14.
    (2) International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights Art. 18, 23 and 24.
    (3) UN Convention on the Rights of the Child Art.8 para. 1 and 2, and Art.14(4)
    (4) The Universal Declaration of Human Rights Art.18.
    (5) International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination Art. 5, Para. 7.

    These 13 violations are enough to indict and convict Norway in any federal or International Court of Law.

    In light of the foregoing, even if the State returns the minor members (children) to their original family sanctuary, the parents of these minor persons (children) are left with serious scars and wounds for the rest of their lives! Who is going to compensate these thousands of victims, such as the Bodnarius, if the international community continues to turn a blind eye to the aforementioned outrageous conduct of Norway State and its odious actors?

  4. READ ATTENTIVELY WHAT JAN SIMONSEN–A HIGH PROFILE NORWAY JURIST–HAS TO SAY ABOUT THE BARNEVERNET AND HOW IT DUPES THE FOREIGN DIGNITARIES… YEAH, IT CAN BE SAID THAT NORWAY’S BARNEVERNET IS A SUPER-DUPER, AND AN ODIOUS TRICKSTER WHICH TERRORIZES AND DECIMATES FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN

    http://www.praguepost.com/viewpoint/51458-norwegian-politician-criticizes-barnevernet

    In sum, it must be said that in most cases the Child Welfare Services take children from their parents on the basis of a subjective judgment of “lack of ability to care”, with very flimsy arguments.

    The attitude right from the start is that the major responsibility for our children is the prerogative of the state, not of the parents. Parents and children are daily subject to these abusive actions from the Child Welfare Services.

    They affect both Norwegian parents and foreign parents in Norway. Even the children of asylum seekers, children who have been confiscated by the Norwegian Child Welfare Services, are kept on permanently with Norwegian foster parents, whereas their parents are expelled from Norway.

    In the wake of the Child Welfare Services we have seen human catastrophes, destroyed families, and in some cases parents who have taken their own lives or have ended up as drug abusers in their desperation over having lost that which is most precious to them. A report from the Norwegian Institute for Urban and Regional Research shows that foster children in Norway take their lives eight times as frequently as other children do.

    This is the truth of the Norwegian Child Welfare Services which the Norwegian Embassy in Bucharest has not wanted to inform the Romanian public about.
