BUCHAREST — A Romanian court has rejected a man’s claim that he’s alive, after he was officially registered as dead.
A court spokeswoman said Friday that 63-year-old Constantin Reliu lost his case in the northeast city of Vasului because he appealed too late. The ruling is final.
Media reported Reliu went to Turkey in 1992 for work and lost contact with his Romanian family. Hearing no news from her husband, his wife managed to get a death certificate for him in 2016.
Turkish authorities located Reliu this year with expired papers and deported him. When he arrived in Romania, he discovered he had been declared dead.
He was quoted as saying: “I am officially dead, although I’m alive, I have no income and because I am listed dead, I can’t do anything.”Follow @gorkhapost
Angry mob kill over 300 crocs in revenge after one of them kill villager in Indonesia
JAKARTA — A mob of angry villagers has killed nearly 300 crocodiles at a sanctuary for the animals in the Indonesian province of West Papua after one of the crocs killed one villager.
The slaughter was in retaliation for a local man thought to have been killed by one animal from the site,The Jakarta Post reported.
A local villager identified only as Sugito, who worked at a tofu factory in Sorong, West Papua, was looking for grass to feed his cattle on Saturday when he was bitten by a crocodile.
His screams alerted a local resident who ‘heard him shouting for help but [he] was found dead,’ Olha told The Jakarta Post.
Police officers arrived the incident site, but were unable to control the murderous frenzy and were left to watch as the pile of bodies grew larger.
Officials and police said they were not able to stop the attack and may now press charges as the killing of a protected species is a crime that carries a fine or imprisonment in Indonesia.Follow @gorkhapost
