Bucharest, the 15thof November 2012. Justice had the final word in the case of little Mara from Campina, Prahova County. On the 14thof November 2012 the Court dismissed as inadmissible the review request from Prahova DGASPC against little Mara who is 3 years old and was born with Down Syndrome.
On the 22ndof August 2012, the Court delivered a final and irrevocable sentence in Mara’s favor in which her right to have a special needs attendant as a result of the special therapy and needs the little girl has, was recognized.
Despite the evidence and the sentence DGASPC refused to accept the situation and decided to attack the Court’s decision, asking for the revision for the sentence.
After over a year of trials, the little girl’s family was forced to make new efforts to answer DGASPC request to review the sentence and come to Court.
The European Center for the Rights of Children with Disabilities (CEDCD) continued to support the case, believing the fact that justice is fundamental in asserting the rights of children with disabilities.
“We draw the attention of authorities in the field, that beyond the institutional reasons they must have regard to the best interests of the child, not only in their assessment and the performance of specific duties, but also to the extent to which they understand to push ahead and contest an evidence. The case of a child with disabilities cannot and must not be the subject of wars whose stake is institutional arrogance,” said Madalina TURZA, CEDCD president.
