President Klaus Iohannis on Wednesday relieved two police heads of their positions. Iohannis signed the decrees removing the chief of the Cluj Police, Tudor Grindean and the chief of Harghita Police, Radu-Sandu Moldovan, who was accused of being a torturer during the communist regime.

Tudor Grindean, chief of Cluj Police is leaving his office after breakouts occurred in the last year. He had been appointed in 2013 when Social Democrat Mircea Dusa was at the helm of the Interior Ministry.

Radu-Sandu Moldovan was appointed at the helm of the Harghita Police also in 2013. He had been exposed by the Institute for Investigation of the Communism Crimes (IICCMER) for torture crimes. The IICCMER notified the Prosecutor’s Office that Moldovan used to beat and abuse long-haired teenagers who wore rings and went to the cinema, concerts or disco in the 80s.

The media also reported that Moldovan would be close to former minister Mircea Dusa, and both of them would be related to the wood mafia in Harghita county.

President Iohannis also disbanded Salan Viorel, appointed as deputy head of the Gendarmerie, after being enrolled at the Gendarmerie in Hunedoara for 22 years.

Also on Wednesday, the head of state signed the retirement decrees for three magistrates- Viorel Marin, judge at the Ploiesti Court of Appeal, Irina Tanase from Pitesti Court of Appeal and Simion Rusu form Dej Court.
