The practice of VOM in Romania has been experimentally undertaken in Bucharest and Craiova. The two
experimental centres have been set up in 2002 based on the partnership between the Department of
Reintegration from Romanian Ministry of Justice, Centre for Legal Resources and the Foundation Family and
Child Care. The technical assistance has been provided by the experts of DFID from UK. According to the aims and objectives of the VOM experiment only those types of crimes have been selected which are based on the criminal complain of the victim (battering, assault and other crimes against the person, insult etc). The persons – victims and young offenders – have been integrated based on their voluntary consent. (excerpt)
