Lawyer Sues Priests for Failure to Banish “Fart Demons” from Home


Something stinks in Romania.. and if the priests are to be believed, it’s the foul stench of demons.

A 34 year old Romanian lawyer has filed a lawsuit against his Orthodox bishop and five priests after what he says was their failure to banish the demons that were slowly driving him from his home, including a “demon of flatulence”.

Madalin Ciculescu claims that the five holy men committed fraud when they showed up to exorcise his home from the diabolical spirits, actually having made the situation worse by the time they left.


“If they (the accused) represent the way of God then God’s ways are crooked,” he told the court. “They did not remove the demons that made these bad smells as they promised to do, and I still see all sorts of demons in the form of animals, usually crows but also other such things, that are making my life miserable.”

Ciculescu claims that the demons have infested several objects around his home, including a hairdryer that produces a black spirit which chases all who attempt to use the device, as well as “foul smelling spirits” that inhabit the refrigerator and stink up the joint.

“When I am at home they switch the TV on and off all the time, they make foul smells that give me headaches and basically roam unhindered around my house and my business.”

According to The Daily Mail, the priests have rebuffed Ciculescu’s claims, saying that the exorcisms were performed properly and that any further demons were simply the product of his imagination.

The case was rejected by the Romanian court system, but Circulescu plans to appeal. Perhaps some Beano would be cheaper?

Could the priests have made Madalin’s situation worse, or is he simply exaggerating reports of fart demons? We want to know what you think. Tweet us @WhoForted, drop us a line on Facebook, or leave a message in the comments below!
