Romania Joins Campaign Against ‚Double Standards‘ in Food

Romania on Thursday joined several Eastern European countries in urging the European Union to address the „double standards“ loophole used by global food chains to sell lower-quality products in Eastern Europe.

“We need to know which companies treat us like second-hand citizens,” Romanian Prime Minister Mihai Tudose told the cabinet meeting on Thursday.

None of the companies concerned are currently legally liable for this practice, as such double standards are legal in the EU as long as the ingredients are safe and are listed on the labels.

But several Eastern European states, including Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania, accuse global food chains of using this loophole to sell inferior products in their countries.

They want the European Commission to come up EU-wide solution that changes the bloc’s consumer protection and food safety laws.

Big food companies have admitted that it is common to use different ingredients for same-name products in different countries – but insist their products vary to suit local tastes rather than to cut costs.

Romania’s Agriculture Minister Petre Daea revealed a study on Wednesday, which showed that out of 29 food products sold in The Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium „nine were different in Romania from the West“.

The study conducted by a government health agency showed different calorie contents in some types of canned fish, liver pate and pork products.

Experts stress that none of the nine products were unfit for consumption, but say they highlight a lack of correlation between labels in Western and Eastern Europe.

„We will ask [the European Commission] to speed up regulatory proceedings and create instruments that can assess such double standards at any time, anywhere,“ Daea said.

Besides Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia have also announced tests to determine whether products sold on their markets differ from those sold in Western European countries.

Bulgaria, which launched a round of testing in May, said in late June that experts found food products sold by global food chains in the country contained different ingredients to identical-brand products sold in Austria and Germany. The government said it would press the European Union to address the issue.

Bulgarian Agriculture Minister Rumen Porozhanov said lab tests had found different ingredients in seven of 31 identical-brand food items sold in Bulgaria.

Experts also found that 16 of these products had been sold at higher prices in the European Union’s poorest state, he said. „It definitely causes anxiety,“ he said. „The double standards are a fact“.

Slovakia’s Prime Minister Robert Fico – representing the Visegrad Four countries that also include the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland – was in Brussels on Thursday to speak to the head of the European Commission, Jean Claude Juncker, about the “double standards”.

“It might seem ridiculous for some, but for the member states that have commissioned me to communicate in their name this might be a serious political problem,” he said on Thursday after meeting Juncker. He said that he appreciated the fact that Juncker acknowledged that the problem existed.

Juncker said after the meeting that he considered the double standards a problem. “I don’t like the idea that there might be a second kind of citizens in Europe and we are working on that,” he told journalists.

However, coming up with new legislation to address the complaints of the EU’s Eastern members might take time.

For the moment, the European Commission announced it will issue guidelines in September to improve food product tests, so that members state can discuss the issue on a “sound and scientific basis,” Commission spokesperson Christian Wigand said on Tuesday.

Kosovo Acquits Ex-Guerrilla of Attacking Macedonian Police

A court in the town of Gjilan/Gilanje acquitted Lirim Jakupi, who has been a member of ethnic Albanian guerrilla groups in Kosovo, Macedonia and Serbia, of attacking Macedonian police in 2014 and 2004.

The Basic Court in Gjilan/Gilanje on Friday found Jakupi, also known as Nazi, not guilty of opening fire on Macedonian police in the country’s capital Skopje in 2014, and in Tetovo in 2004.

Jakupi, a veteran of various ethnic Albanian guerrilla groups, was cleared of attempting to commit murder in cooperation with others.

The judge, Aziz Shaqiri, said that on the other charge against Jakupi – the unauthorised possession, control or use of weapons – the statute of limitations has expired.

The prosecution had alleged that Jakupi and another person opened fire on three uniformed police officers in Skopje on September 15, 2014.

It claimed that officers Zoran Angelovski, Vasko Ivanovski and Elza Durmitrovska were attacked and seriously injured by gunshots while on patrol in a police car.

“By shooting at the three officers, Lirim Jakupi tried to deprive them of life in the following circumstances: he deliberately jeopardised the lives of these people, acting ruthlessly and violently, at a time when the three officers were carrying out their duty of upholding the legal order, detecting criminal offences and maintaining public order and peace,” the indictment alleged.

Jakupi joined the Kosovo Liberation Army in 1998 and fought against Serbian security forces.

He was also involved in forming the Liberation Army of Presevo, Medvedja and Bujanovac, UCPMB, which launched attacks on security forces in Albanian-populated areas of southern Serbia in 2000.

After the UCPMB was demobilised, Jakupi settled in Kosovo.

He was arrested by international security forces but managed to break out of Kosovo’s Dubrava prison in 2007.

Macedonian police raided the village of Brodec on Sara Mountain near the Kosovo border in November 2007, three months after his escape from prison.

Several members of Jakupi’s group were killed and several others arrested, although he managed to get away.

Macedonian courts jailed Jakupi in absentia for 15 years in July 2008 for organising a terrorist group and the illegal possession of weapons.

He was arrested again by Kosovo police in 2010.

A Kalashnikov automatic rifle, two hand grenades and two pistols were discovered at the apartment where he was detained by police special forces, officials said at the time.
