Roumanian Communities Forbidden to Have Connections Abroad

January 4, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Roumanian law regulating the functions and conduct of religious communities prohibits contact by any religious community in Roumania with similar bodies abroad, it is learned, the reason given by the authorities being that such contact would subject the Roumanian communities to foreign influence. This ruling, it is understood, applies also to funds contributed from organizations abroad for those in Roumania, and vice versa, unless special permission had been obtained from the Government.
