President Iohannis: I firmly condemn brutal intervention of Gendarmerie; Interior Minister must explain urgently
Bucharest, Aug 10 /Agerpres/ - President Klaus Iohannis firmly condemns the brutal intervention of the Gendarmerie against the demonstrators in Victory Square and underlines that Interior Minister Carmen Dan must urgently explain the way in which she managed the events.
"In an authentic democracy it is the right of every person to protest, but violence is not acceptable, regardless of political options. I firmly condemn the brutal intervention of the Gendarmerie, strongly disproportionate with the demonstrations of the majority of people in Victoria Square. The attempt to defeat the will of the people through a violent reaction of the law enforcement forces is a condemnable solution. The Interior Ministry must urgently explain the way in which she managed the events of this evening. AGERPRES (RO - author: Florentina Peia, editor: Marius Fratila; EN - editor: Razvan-Adrian Pandea)
