Problems with Ceausescu

2013-08-07

Radu L. Petrescu is known because of the incident that happened in the 1988 Romanian Cup Final, Steaua - Dinamo, when he disallowed a goal scored by Steaua in the last minute and Valentin Ceausescu (the Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu's son), who was a Steaua fan, asked the team to leave the field and further demanded that the referee be punished by the Romanian Communist Party. Currently, he is an assessor for the first two divisions.
