"In Transylvania, the Partium, the South Máramaros (Maramures) region, and the East Bánát – territories that have belonged to Romania for a hundred years – the prospects of native minority languages look reasonably good on paper. Regardless of the fact that the Romanian constitution is no less exclusionary than those of the countries previously discussed, and that Hungarians are not considered or treated as essential, organic parts of the state in their native land despite having built and defended Transylvania and the southeastern parts of the Great Plain for a thousand years, there are a large number of regulations in force that must be deemed laudable by European standards."

"The Romanian secret service however has resorted to the methods of its predecessor, the infamous Securitate, by leaving no stone unturned in its pursuit of real or perceived reasons to strong-arm Hungarians who dare to stand up for their rights. Their aim is to generate fear, in order to intimidate those struggling for the respect of minority rights. In the case of István Beke and Zoltán Szőcs, they believed they had found proof justifying a possible reprisal, but after discovering that the evidence was too thin, began fabricating a Communist-style show trial, complete with doctored evidence."
