Two bomb alerts at the Bucharest Court of Appeals and at the Public Ministry on Monday have proved to be false. The alert was started by a phone made to 112 emergency number, announcing that an explosive device had been placed in both of the mentioned institutions, stiri.tvr.ro informs.
The fire-fighters have found no such devices at the Court of Appeals and at the Public Ministry, following searches that lasted more than an hour and a half.
Most probably, a person wanted o block the institutions’ activity or to make a broad joke.
The phone call was made at about 12.20h. It was a men’s voice saying that a bomb had been placed at the Public Ministry (Prosecutor’s Office).
The Palace of Justice, hosting the Court of Appeals and the District 5 Court offices, was evacuated for the time of the searches.
