Following the deadly attack on United Nations workers on Friday 1st April 2011 in Mazar-i-Sharif, Romanian citizen, Filaret Motco aged 43, is confirmed as one of the foreign workers killed.

  1. I never knew you. I never met you. But tomorrow when I wake, I will remember you.

  2. Draga Filaret, sunt unul dintre milioanele de romani intristati de jertfa ta. Esti un erou adevarat si sacrificiul tau nu este in van. Eu, ca si altii, invat de la tine valorile pentru care ti-ai dat viata. Ma simt mandru de ceea ce tu ai realizat pe acest pamant. Ma inclin in fata ta si iti zic: Cinste Tie si Dumnezeu sa te ierte.
    Long Live Romania, United States of America and the free countries of the world. Honour to the Heroes.

  3. I happened to work with Filaret in Dushanbe in OSCE and what I am certain of is that he did not deserve such a death! He was a very kind and generous man. We remember him by his help to the orphange in Dushanbe, by him helping eldery people, by gifts to the children of his local colleagues, by flowers and trees he planted in my friend's garden and many other deads to list I would need a space for.
    We, who knew Filaret, will pray for him...
    Shahrigul, his former assistant
