Astăzi s-a născut: Arnold Schwarzenegger (1947)

Posted by burdujan pe 30/07/2009



An Austrian-born bodybuilder, Schwarzenegger won the first of his five Mr. Universe titles in 1967 and went on to become a Hollywood action star.
Un bodybuilder de origine austriacă, Schwarzenegger a câştigat primul din cele cinci titluri Mr. Univers în 1967 şi a devenit star de filme de actiune la Hollywood.
An increasingly active Republican during the 1990s, he was elected governor of California in 2003.
Un Republican din ce în ce mai activ în anii ’90, el a fost ales guvernator al Californiei în 2003.
Schwarzenegger ran for re-election in 2006 and, despite the numerous criticisms of his first term, defeated Democrat Phil Angelides.
Schwarzenegger a participat în alegerile din 2006, şi, în ciuda numeroaselor critici din primul său termen, l-a învins pe democratul Phil Angelides.


Question: Why did Austrian politician Peter Pilz demand that Schwarzenegger be stripped of his Austrian citizenship?
In 2005 Peter Pilz from the Austrian Green Party in parliament demanded to revoke Schwarzenegger’s Austrian citizenship.
This demand was based on article 33 of the Austrian citizenship act that states:
A citizen, who is in the public service of a foreign country, shall be deprived of his citizenship, if he heavily damages the reputation or the interests of the Austrian Republic.

Pilz claimed that Schwarzenegger’s actions in support of the death penalty (prohibited in Austria under Protocol 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights) had indeed done damage to Austria’s reputation.
Schwarzenegger justified his actions by referring to the fact that his only duty as Governor of California was to prevent an error in the judicial system.
Schwarzenegger has a lot of muscles, but apparently not much heart, said Julien Dray, spokesman for the Socialist Party in France, where the death penalty was abolished in 1981.
