Dorel Dinca, a driver at a private parking lot in Bors, a small locality near the Hungarian border was allegedly ill-treated by police officers on 20 February 1993. While helping a German driver park his lorry, they were stopped by police, who asked the German driver for his documents. When he initially failed to understand them, they made the two men dismount, and forced Dorel Dinca to strip, whereupon he was beaten for about two hours. On account of this beating, he was hospitalized for four days in February, and again in March 1993. After allegedly being threatened by local police he was officially obliged to leave the area. Two eye-witnesses have been pressured by the police not to testify, and no investigations appear to have been carried out into his ill-treatment
