The Walking Dead : Constantin Reliu

This story made me guffaw although it is probably not that funny for Constantin Reliu. He is a Romanian man who left his family to find work in Turkey but he did not communicate with his wife from 1992 to 2016 - 24 years! I cannot fault her for thinking her husband may be dead and for having him declared dead as such.

However he made a return in 2017 when he was deported from Turkey back to Romania and then tried to declare himself  as not dead. I guess his bit of Karma is that the Romanian authorities seem to have a statute of limitations as to when you can declare yourself not to be dead and therefore at the moment he is considered dead as he applied too late.

Ah well, I am hopeful that some common sense will prevail but for the moment he is literally the walking dead.
