Being between the protesting students of the Medicine & Pharmacy University “Iuliu Maniu” from Cluj, Nati Meir stated: “Starting with this morning I am being in Cluj, together with the students, indignant with the increase of the tuition cost for the school year 2009/2010, which I’ll give all my support in order to solve this matter. I have accompanied them on their protest march and I have also participated at the discussions with Mr. rector Constantin Ciuce. The negotiations are not finished but, for the moment, the conclusion reveals that the solving of this problem surpasses the competence of the university’ management.
The increase of the tuition cost, being adopted on OUG 22/29.08.2009 basis, with applicability beginning 2009/2010, its solving may be fulfilled only by the Government.
For this reason the students from Cluj are appealing to their collegues from the other university cities as Iasi, Timisoara, Bucharest, Oradea, Arad in order to organize, during the next week, an ample action in front of the Government Building and to ask for a meeting with the minister of education. I consider the situation of these students as very critical as far as the payment of the tuition cost conditions the obtaining of the study visa, in its lake they being obliged to leave the country. I will stand them by .”
