Dead or Alive?

doa

A man who presented himself before a Court to prove that he is still alive has been refused the annulment of his death certificate.

Mr Deliu (63) was declared dead in 2016 two decades after he left Romania to work in Turkey.

He had no contact during that period with his (allegedly unfaithful) wife, who reported his death. Mr Deliu returned to Romania in January and sought to annul the death certificate to enter into legal employment.

However the Judge ruled that the deadline for appealing a death certificate had passed and there was nothing they could do!
