|Excerpt||The repression against Romanian journalists started in February 1945, when a law on the political cleaning of print media journalists was enacted. This law was based on the Armistice Convention signed in Moscow on September 12, 1944 by Romania and its allies.
Print media cleaning was based on law no. 102 on press cleaning, published
in the „Official Journal“ no. 34 from February 12, 1945. This law was the theoretical tool for implementing the political cleaning of print
media institutions. After August 23, 1944, this institution tried - by its representatives and within the limits imposed by the internal and external political environment, otherwise extremely tensed - to regain its democratic status, meant to objectively inform the public opinion by excluding, as far as possible, any political interference.
The political repression on print media was made possible with the help of
governmental bodies controlled by the Communist Party (the Council of Ministers, the Ministry of Justice through the Peoples’ Court, the National Propaganda Ministry), resulting in the removal of those journalists who didn’t observe the rulers’ official policy, therefore being subject to severe consequences, life imprisonment included.
