Romania: The alleged ill-treatment of Ioan Neagu
AI is concerned about the reported beating of Ioan Neagu, a factory worker, by police on 30 September 1994. Mr Neagu had gone to S.C. Fartec S.A., a factory in Brasov from which he had been dismissed in violation of a court ruling. Mr Neagu apparently wanted to see the President of Romania, who was to visit the factory that afternoon. While waiting outside the factory entrance he was reportedly surrounded by police who beat and kicked him and brought him to Brazov police station. He was later relased without charge.
