Romania: Ill-treatment of minors: Gheorghe Notar Jr, Ioan Otvos and Rupi Stoica
Amnesty International is concerned about reports that in July 1996 police officers and public guardians in Targu-Mures ill-treated three Roma minors who were held in custody for five days in the Centre for the Protection of Minors. In the course of their detention they were taken to the police station and interrogated on several occasions by police officers without the presence of a lawyer or their parents. Amnesty International is also concerned that the parents of the minors were harassed by police officers following their complaint about ill-treatment to the Military Prosecutors and that the detained minors were not provided with adequate medical treatment for injuries suffered as a result of ill-treatment.
