Military prosecutors authorized the release on the General Prosecutor’s Office website of the photos existing in the “Miners’ riot” file in order to identify 100 people detained in the Universitatii Square on June 13, 1990 and who were taken at Magurele military unit. The prosecutors argue that they could not identify all persons who were arrested at that moment as they declared insufficient identification information. 100 people detained on the morning of June 13, 1990 cannot be identified as the photo albums made inside the Magurele military unit revealed only their names, without further information.
“Although military prosecutors conducted checks, they didn’t lead to all the injured persons’ identification following events on June 13-15, 1990 in Bucharest (…) As such, to solve this case with expedience, we publish the photos of the following persons. Information that can lead us to identify the injured persons in this case are to be released for 30 days since the day of the their release, and they will be withdrawn after this date,” the Prosecutor’s Office informed.
The persons who have information about those featuring in the photos can call at: 0213193833 (interior 1244), fax: 0213193889, or by e-mail: email@example.com.
