Moldova: Memorandum: Amnesty International’s concerns relating to policing during and after the events of 7 April 2009 in Chişinău

Hundreds of people, including minors, were detained in Moldova as the country’s authorities clamped down following demonstrations which started in the capital on 6 April but which led to rioting on 7 April 2009. Amnesty International is concerned that people, mostly of student age, were detained indiscriminately and many were subjected to torture and other ill-treatment.
