Following the scandal of the past few days, the Romanian Police has deleted the review section of its official Facebook page.
The decision was made after the Romanian Police Facebook page was assaulted by tens of thousands of people who gave negative reviews after the police seized the license plate plates of a car registered in Sweden by a Romanian citizen, with an anti-PSD message.
Then, Ovidiu Munteanu, the spokesperson of the Traffic Police, has posted on Facebook a message for those who have given only one star on the Romanian Police page: to stop calling the Police when they are in need.
“To all those who offended and hate the Romanian Police, I ask them that next time you are in trouble, call anyone else, not the Police. When your goods are stolen, when you are being aggressed on the street, when someone cheats you, in case of road accidents, when you or others need the Police support, please call your neighbours, priest, relatives, but not the Police,” spokesman Munteanu wrote on the Romanian Police Facebook page.
The Traffic Brigade has delimited from Munteanu’s message and assures that it will remain in the service of citizens, regardless of the situation.
“Regarding the message posted on the Romanian Police Facebook page by our colleague Ovidiu Munteanu, we inform you that the Traffic Brigade does not support the message, the message is strictly personal. The Traffic Brigade assures you it will serve the citizens, regardless of the situation,” the Traffic Brigade said.
In addition, the wave of negative messages and reviews on Facebook made the site’s administrators try to get five-star reviews, as commissioner Traian Berbeceanu has revealed on Facebook. He posted a photo with a screen capture of a message sent by the Romanian Police.
“Hello, I have a request, can you go to the official Facebook page of the Romanian Police for reviews and grant us five stars? Thank you very much,” the message reads.
Răzvan Ștefănescu, the driver from Sweden with anti-PSD plates, said on Tuesday, while at the Traffic Police offices, that he will file a criminal complaint because his son had to attend the hearings, which lasted several hours.
Ştefănescu, the owner of the car registered in Sweden with personalized plates M…PSD (blow… to PSD), had his driving license suspended and the license plates confiscated by the Romanian Police on Monday.
