vasului - A Romanian court officially declared a living man dead. The man from Vasului claimed that he was still alive, but the judge did not kick in.
According to a spokesman for the court, 63-year-old Constantin Reliu lost this case because he had appealed too late. This statement is definitive, reports The Guardian.
According to Romanian media, Reliu went to Turkey for work in 1992 and since then lost contact with his family in Romania. Since his wife never heard anything from him all this time, she managed to obtain a death certificate for him in 2016.
All nice and nice, but he turned out not to have died at all. Turkish authorities trained him this year and his papers to stay in Turkey had expired. Once returned to Romania, Reliu turned out to have been declared dead.
'I am officially dead, although I am really alive. I have no income and because I was declared dead, I can not do anything, 'he said in court.
