On July 15, 2019 we received two horror reports from the small port of Romania, Midia.
One was that 70,000 live sheep were to be transported to Kuwait by ship.
The other horror message was the impudent refusal of the meaningless Romanian Minister of Agriculture to ban the transport.
EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety’s Andriukaitis had emailed Petre Daea to ban this brutal drive of 70,000 sheep to the Persian Gulf.
“I urge you to stop the import of sheep to the Persian Gulf”, said Vytenis Andriukaitis in his letter.
The EU representative Anja Hazekamp was on site and had also demonstrated against the transport unmistakable.
The cruise should take 6 days. Until now (21.07.19, 19:34) the ship is still on its way, and the still alive animals suffer from dehydration, hunger, ammonia stench and heat stroke.
Finally, Agra Minister Daea writes Commissioner Andriukaitis on his ass and gives the green light to a transport that will soon become the mobile Auschwitz for a few thousand animals.
Petre Daea was just finished with his six-month EU- Council presidency when he admitted this illegal animal transport.
In this short time, Daea has been well aware of the inability of certain EU commissioners to benefit. He understood that he had nothing to fear because his EU colleagues had neither the authority nor the courage to force a meaningless minister to obedience.
And at once he acted with an outrageous authority over his colleague Andriukaitis, which disgusted every civilized and democratic man.
Due to the fundamental inability and ignorance of the EU Commission to take elementary measures against unnecessary suffering in animal transport (such as the ban on transport through Europe and to third countries in the summer), every corrupt minister becomes the head and hangman of the Animal Protection Act, and even in a continent that wants to assert itself as progressive and superior to China or Africa.
The EU Commission, including its 28 idle and useless commissioners, has failed.
This fact is not new, but it is getting more dramatic.
The case of Midia, including ministers and commissioners, is a scandal, it is cruel, it is inhuman and extremely irresponsible.
The deeper the disappointment for all animal rights activists grows, the more we hope that the new President of the EU Commission, the German Ursula von der Leynen, will bring an appropriate share of responsibility and authority to the lame men of the Commission.
We will talk more about this topic soon.
My best regards to all, Venus
