Were the Swedish judges endowed with paranormal capacities of foreseeing what will happen or were they only acknowledging the abnormality of the Romanian justice system? I am inclined towards the latter as I am sure the respectable Swedish judges themselves would also agree.Yesterday, 14th of June 2013, Gregorian Bivolaru was sentenced to 6 years imprisonment for sex with a minor. Yesterday was the day on which the Supreme Court of Justice of Romania fulfilled the “prophecy” of the Swedish Supreme Court of Justice. On October 21st 2005, Anette Swedow, the chief prosecutor in the Gregorian Bivolaru case declared: The final decision is that should Bivolaru be extradited to Romania, he runs the risk of being deported, persecuted and harassed, because of the religious aspects he applies within the yoga movement.
The abnormality that was prophetically pointed out in the Supreme Court of Sweden in 2005 not only made the decision of the Bucharest court predictable but it also caused the European Union MCV report on Romanian Justice to criticize several aspects of the system.
Knowing all these facts, and also knowing yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru (Grieg), I consider the decision of the Supreme Court of Justice in Romania to be a shame of the juridical system and an example of how far abuses can go in a desperate attempt to follow a private agenda despite all the evidence. This decision is nothing but another confirmation of the presence of compromise and mediocrity in the lives of many people.
From the very beginning, this trial was under the shadow of abuse, forgery and lies. 17 year old Madalina Dumitru was taken from her bed on the morning of March 18th 2004 and forced under physical and psychological pressure to sign a declaration that was afterwards used to incriminate yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru. There is forensic evidence proving she was physically abused by the prosecutors! She was refused the right to receive juridical assistance. After she was allowed to go home she came back with a lawyer but from that moment on her declarations were COMPLETELY IGNORED by the prosecutors. Gregorian Bivolaru was accused of having sex with her while she was a minor (17 years old), using his position as her teacher. In reality, she never attended any class taught by Grieg, nor did she have a relationship with him. But it seems this was a minor detail for the prosecution. She was rushed to the forensic institute for a forced gynecological exam, violently taken in front of all the media, in the middle of a special forces squad. And all of this, said the prosecutors, was done in order to make justice for her!
Grieg was arrested at the border and after three days of sending him back and forth, from one court to another, in the police operation carrying the code name “Christ”, he was released on the grounds of lack of evidence. Convinced that there is no chance of having any fair treatment in Romania, Grieg went to Sweden where he applied for political asylum. All the Romanian media present him as being caught running into Sweden. On the request of the Romanian authorities, the Swedish police arrested Grieg at his second interview with the immigration authorities. They kept him for eight months in complete isolation, again under the specific request of Romania. In all European countries, total isolation for more than 12 days is considered torture. In his case no such observations were accepted even if the law was clear.
In the following video, General Dan Voinea, the former chief of the Military Prosecutors’ Offices in Romania, who, following the investigation started in order to shed light upon this file, was removed from the position he previously held, explains the way Gregorian Bivolaru’s file has actually been made up by the Romanian Prosecutors’ Office following the order of the Romanian Communist Secret Services (Securitate). “It is a strange and unique case within the European Justice System,” he declares. You will find here more about what, who and why hides behind the corrupt Romanian ”justice” with regards to Grieg and the MISA school.
Romania asked for Grieg to be sent back for trial but Sweden refused to do so. Moreover, the Swedish authorities decided to take the decision up to the Supreme Court of Justice and to invite the alleged “victim” to speak in the court. They also asked Sweden’s foremost expert in sects, Rev. Karl-Erik Nylund, to make an investigation of MISA/NATHA and to present his conclusions before the Supreme Court. Based on the court hearing with the “victim”, the immense amount of evidence presented by Grieg and the testimony of Rev. Nylund, the Supreme Court of Sweden decided to unconditionally release Grieg and a few days later the Swedish state granted him political asylum because in Romania his life would be endangered and he would not have a fair trial. The Swedish state not only gave Grieg this status but also offered him protected identity based on the evidence presented in the court.
Justice in Romania
One would believe that the story would then come to an end and such a blow to the Romanian justice system would have its transforming effects. The PM of Romania came to a press conference and talked about the severe consequences that Grieg’s asylum in Sweden would have upon Romania … but nothing in reality has changed. An inquiry was ordered in order to establish whose fault the current situation was. This gave me and many others a hope that someone had finally understood the lesson and they would step down. But soon after, the Supreme Council of Magistrates (there are a lot of “Supremes” in this case ) came forward with a staggering conclusion: the only ones guilty for this situation were the Romanian Minister of Justice because the papers sent to Sweden were not properly made. Another scapegoat was the yogis themselves who were accused of staging all the violence done by the police against them! It was claimed that the yogis dressed themselves up as policemen and beat their colleagues, filmed it all, and sent it to the media.
After this answer to a governmental inquiry that was supposed to clarify the situation it was at least clear for many people what would be the outcome of this trial.
Yet there were also people of honor and in the first court Grieg was found innocent on the grounds that the incriminated act did not exist. The prosecution took the case to the Court of Appeal and there again the solution was confirmed, Grieg is innocent. But at the last level, the Supreme Court, things started to go totally wrong. The Supreme Court decided to quash, without any explanation (at least nothing worth mentioning), the two previous court decisions, and instead of sending the file back to the lower court they decided to rejudge it from the beginning.
Not only did they decide to proceed in this abnormal way, but one of the judges from this team was not legally appointed to office (normally they are appointed by presidential decree). Abusive behavior, obstructing witnesses from speaking, mocking Grieg’s lawyers in a way that gave a shocking impression to the international observers that came to many of the court hearings, all of this contributed to the current atmosphere in this court. So much happened in this respect that five legal complaints were issued against these judges to the Supreme Council of Magistrates. But all of them were met with indifference, two of them never received any answer even though by law the Council has to reply. The complaint referring to the illegal status of one of the judges, a severe flaw in the way the trial is organized, was given the initial answer that a judiciary inspection needs to be sent to check these severe aspects … but no inspection was ever sent.
The more time that passed the more convinced we were that the decision had already been taken and what ensued was only an effort to find some acceptable explanations for it.
In the last phase of the court, the judge accepted that Grieg was to be directly questioned by an international commission organized by Sweden. Sweden started to organize the commission but suddenly the Romanian judge decides to cancel this international commission, thus denying Grieg’s fundamental right to be heard in the court. The reason for this aberrant decision: the trial is taking too long and the Swedish authorities are unprofessional in organizing the commission. Why then were 9 years not too much for this trial, and when Grieg wanted to talk before an international commission … suddenly the trial had to come to an end? What were they so afraid of that they committed such a blatant violation of basic human rights? Could it be that Grieg would tell about what he knows regarding the ones behind this trial? What else can it be?
With this last immense abuse, with unanswered complaints regarding even the very structure of organizing this trial, we entered the final hearing on 14th of June 2013. And there, after the prosecution dropped all the other charges that were added along the way following the initial accusation due to lack of evidence, the sentence was coming … and here nobody was surprised after all that had happened.
Gregorian Bivolaru is sentenced to 6 years imprisonment for having sex with a minor. The minor is declaring that she was abused by the Romanian authorities and everyone can see that her life was made a living hell by the fact she was used as a tool to fulfill the agenda of the prosecutors and their shadowy masters. Several attempts were made to bring more stories into this file but they were all proven to be just … stories. The Swedish judges questioned Madalina Dumitru, the alleged victim, in the Supreme Court in Stockholm and so convinced were they about the victimization of this woman that they immediately released Grieg from prison after keeping him in isolation as a dangerous criminal, as requested by the Romanians.
Sweden immediately granted Grieg political asylum for the reason of not having the chance for a fair trial in Romania. Did we miss something…?
Oh yes, tens of thousand of people whose lives were for so many years attacked, discredited, and are now stigmatized. The mentor of the yoga school where they learn yoga is sentenced to prison and they are therefore carrying this stigma upon them now. Many have lost their jobs, and many families have been suffering because of this intense mediabolization of the yoga movement.
No matter how you try to put it, this trial is rotten to its core. Of course the state and the prosecution have to prove something after 9 years of extraordinarily many resources being spent on this case. The outcome became, over time, inevitable in the Romanian paradigm. A not-guilty verdict became impossible because after a certain amount of time and resources spent there is no way back for the prosecution without risking their own head. On top of this we have the ones that ordered this whole circus, the occult forces that are behind the scenes and that are still in place. They will not accept defeat for the simple reason they do not understand the notion.
This trial started and ended in the same way, with the same problems of the system as if the nine years that passed did not leave any mark on the Romanian judiciary.
Gregorian Bivolaru has political asylum in Sweden and, as we know him, he will continue his activity without any problem just like he has until now. But it was Romania that lost the chance to make justice work and to prove that the old mentalities are long gone … I strongly hope that at least this case will serve as a wake-up call for many people who naively believe that things can be done halfway and a solid state can be built only on words and political promises. I invite all yogis to join together as a spiritual fraternity in the name of the moral principles to support Grieg’s standing for the Truth.
