Romania: Continuing reports of unlawful use of firearms by law enforcement officials
In this document Amnesty International expresses its concern about more reports of unlawful use of firearms by law enforcement officials in Romania. In at least two cases reported in 2004 the victims were killed while in others the shootings resulted in the victims' serious injury. Amnesty International is also concerned that the use of firearms by police officers in disputed circumstances is a long-standing problem which the Romanian authorities have failed to effectively address and that investigations into most of these incidents were not impartial and thorough.
