Romanian PM Viorica Dancila refused to send a message to the victims of the fire that burned down the Colectiv club on October 30, 2015, killing 64 people. She was asked by journalists whether she had a message for the victims, but she avoided a response and quickly left the scene.

Viorica Dancila responded to journalists’ questions about a possible government reshuffle and Romania’s takeover of the presidency of the Council of the EU, and at the end of her statements she was asked by a journalist whether she had a message for the victims of the fire in Colectiv.

Dancila did not answer, thanked the journalists, then left.

Today marks three years since the tragedy in the Colectiv Club in Bucharest, when 64 young people died on the evening of the fire and in the subsequent weeks.

In July 2017, a survivor of the fire committed suicide, bringing the number of victims to 65.
