The Military Prosecutor’s Office has notified ex-officio on Monday on the intervention of gendarmes last week, in Topoloveni, in the case of a spontaneous protest against PSD leader Liviu Dragnea, expected to pay a visit, judicial sources, quoted by ziare.com, inform.
Several protesters and a Rezistenta TV reporter were taken over by gendarmes in Topoloveni, Arges County. The protesters were filming with the mobile phones, in a public area, waiting for Liviu Dragnea to arrive. They were taken by patrol wagon to the police precinct, although they were peaceful and have presented their IDs willingly.
They were released after one hour and a half, after the departure of the PSD leader.
Alexandru Ivan, spokesperson of Arges Police Inspectorate said at the time that the protesters were attending an “unreported public gathering”, while chanting slogans and displaying banners.
The PSD opponents were displaying banners such “Arges does matter! It has not voted theft! You are not Romania” and chanting anti-PSD messages.
Liberal deputy Ovidiu Raeţchi commented the incident last Friday, saying it is an “abuse that places Gendarmerie among the Soviet-type repression forces.”
PSD chairman Liviu Dragnea paid an electoral informal visit in Topoloveni on Friday. In a small hall he delivered a short speech to the members of PSD Arges organisation. According to Digi 24 TV private broadcaster, the SocDem leader stated during the speech that “Romanians may not vote for PSD and I even ask them to think carefully.”
