Welcome speech of the German Ambassador in Romania on the occasion of the 2nd German-Romanian Criminal Law Conference

Ambassador Lohkamp emphasises reconciliation with the past

“Coming to terms with a system of injustice by criminal law is an important means of coping with the past. Criminal law is, however, only one of many means” […]. The task is a lot more complex than this. There is not one single key, for this a society need an entire set of measures.”In his welcome speech on the occasion of the 2nd German-Romanian Criminal Law Conference in Bucharest von 10 March 2007, German Ambassador Roland Lohkamp thus described the challenges Romania is presently facing with respect to a successful dealing and reconciling with the past. One panel on the conference, which had been organised by the RLP SEE and the German-Romanian Lawyers’ Association, was dedicated to criminal law reactions on systematic injustice in Romania as well as in Germany after the Reunification.
