    Horrendous, so much corruption in Romanian – that’s why most of the west have a negative opinion. Terrible terrible shame.

    To bad our justice sistem is full of legal ways which are in favour for the criminals. Ex: the police in this case had expected 19 hours before they entered into his house,while the girl was tortured. See not so far ago the guvern had freed inmates for the excuse that they were old. Man if they aren’t dead or imobilized I don’t see why they have to leave incarceration.

    If that was their daughter in that house would they go in. ? I cannot believe this happened. I have tears in my eyes from the other side of the earth for the girls. The policemen should be locked up and throw away the key.

    Really Sarah? Quite lots of similar situation had happened in West Europe and US I would say even more bestial.
