Emy Zarnescu sees similarities in the way the Norwegian press reports on evangelical Christians and the way the Romanian press covered events during the communist years and before the fall of its dictator in 1989, Nicolae Ceasusecsu in the country where he was born, Romania:

I do not pretend to be an expert on Norway’s press, but now as a resident of this country, I read the main Norwegian publications on a daily basis. As a blogger I also like to keep myself informed and up to date with the big headlines in the world press. As a graduate in theology I try to understand and track the ideas that are spread and influence society through the media.

Well, one of the subjects where I think the press in Norway does a bad job is Barnevernet. I have followed as much as I could the big headlines with Barnevernet for the last three years and that’s because some Norwegian friends told me to be very careful with this institution. I’ve heard many stories about how Barnevernet works and its forced interventions in the families, but they were far from me…..

And Emy Zarnescu enumerates some discrepancies that the media should investigate, and the questions they should be asking, such as:

  • Did you know that, in many cases, the removal of the children from home is not the last solution, as the authorities say, but the first action, without any warning or any social investigation, just like in the case of my friend? Can you investigate why is this discrepancy between the official statement and their practices?
  • What are the Human Rights Laws that conflict with the everyday practices of Barnevernet?
  • A parent whose children were taken away by Barnevernet has the right to a public defender but do you know that in fact they have the obligation to have only a public defender?

Norwegian journalists, we add our voice to Mr. Emy Zarnescu. Please read Emy Zarnescu’s article and contemplate using your platform to ask the hard questions of Barnevernet! Do not take their propaganda for truth. Find out for yourselves.
