Newsroom 28/10/2016 | 11:11


Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos will meet a group of survivors of the Colectiv club fire and their relatives on Friday morning. The meeting will also be attended by Health Minister Vlad Voiculescu.

The Ciolos government adopted on Wednesday an emergency ordinance to prolong by two years the possibility to reimburse the costs of treatment received by victims of the Colectiv club fire abroad.

“The Government adopted today an emergency ordinance modifying the emergency ordinance adopted at the beginning of the year on the treatment of Colectiv patients received abroad and who will receive treatment abroad,” Minister of Health Vlad Voiculescu announced. The minister added that the amount will be included in the ministry’s budget for the next two years.

According to Voiculescu, in 2016, only a small part of the budget for the treatment of Colectiv victims was used, due to “red tape”. The new emergency ordinance eliminates this type of obstacles, the health minister explained.

PM Dacian Ciolos took office on 17 November 2015. He was appointed by President Klaus Iohannis after Victor Ponta stepped down, following mass protests in Bucharest.
