Idiot of the Week: Rares Bogdan

Rares Bogdan, an MEP from Romania, won with brio the latest Idiot of the week title. As Covid-19 is ravaging Romania, Mr Bogdan organized last Monday a party in a restaurant in Cluj-Napoca, a city in northwestern Romania, to celebrate his daughter’s birthday. Although large parties indoors are officially banned and authorities are relentlessly urging people to avoid crowds as the number of Covid-19 cases is growing again in Romania, Mr Bogdan brought together more than 100 people, to have fun. Most of them danced and mingled inside the restaurant. Libertatea, a Romanian newspaper, filmed the shindig with a drone. Mr Bogdan told a local television station that he had no remorses for what he did.
