According to a representative of Helsinki Watch in New York, the Uniate Church was one that suffered the greatest property losses of all the Romanian Churches (12 Oct. 1993). The representative added that the Uniate Church is the only Church that received compensation for properties lost during the communist era (Ibid.).
For further information on the Uniate Church, please refer to Responses to Information Requests ROM15457 and ROM15458.
This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
