The spokesperson of the SRI: “With flip flops or with boots of war, of the city or in the villages, these citizens may cause loss of human lives”
the Spokesperson of the SRI, Ovidiu Marincea, published on Facebook a message that says the profile of the potential terrorist is the same everywhere in the world: poor, non-integrated in society, connected to the criminal environment. And many of them have escaped the attention of authorities precisely because they didn’t go out with anything out.
his Reaction Ovidiu Marincea comes after the press published in the last few days more information about the family and the living conditions of Romanian suspected of terrorism in Arges, arrested for 30 days under the charge of the jihadi propaganda.
“In the case of the Romanian citizen arrested for 30 days for propaganda jihadista and collection of information about a military target on the territory of Romania, with the aim of providing them with a group of salafist jihadist recognised in Europe, there is already the tendency of a part of the public opinion to downplay.
covered in the town where he lived the citizen, are born questions of the kind: a poor man, without training, from a small village what a real danger it could represent for the safety of the citizens of Romania? He was able to go on? He did it to collect relevant information about the objective in Romania?
To most of these questions the prosecutors and, subsequently, the judges will decide. A court has already decided his arrest for 30 days. Not the SRI.
But I think that neither should we expect that those converts and radicalizati to be academics, nor with a financial situation good and even establish from the point of view emotionally. The profile of the potential terrorist who directly or indirectly contribute to the war unequal, inhumane, and illegal you take the affiliate group da’esh (ISIS) is the same everywhere in the world: poor people (and financial and with the spirit) connected to the environment criminal of small scale (pickpockets, authors of small robbers, some with violence) with a period less or more spent in prison, isolated or autoizolati, neintegrati in society. Those who have already committed the bombings in Europe there are people that no one would have suspected in a terrorist act. Some were in the attention of the authorities for years, but in freedom. Others have escaped the attention of the authorities precisely because you didn’t come out with anything out.
SRI, and I think that any authority or person in the roman state, can’t afford to not inform law enforcement authorities about any suspicion related to terrorism. With flip-flops or with boots of war, from town or from the villages, with the cylinder or any improvised explosive device, these citizens may cause loss of human lives. The role of SRI is to prevent such facts. And to prevent them, we collect information in this regard, on the basis of mandates given by the judge, the data that you present and then to the prosecutors, the police, after the case.
the Courts decide if a citizen is a danger to our safety or not. Not the SRI website.
In the press conference attached you can find more answers about this case and about the radicalisation in general”, he wrote Ovidiu Marincea, on Facebook.
