Hundreds gathered in front of the Romanian Ministry of Internal Affairs in Bucharest on Sunday to condemn the authorities and the police after they failed to respond to a 15-year-old girl’s urgent calls for help after being kidnapped and raped, and before her subsequent murder.
Protesters laid flowers and lit candles at a makeshift memorial outside the ministry for the victim who has been... Еще identified as Alexandra Macesanu.
«How long should we put up with the incompetent and stupid people in the public service?» demanded an angry protester after the reports indicated that the police had waited about 19 hours to take action.
Police briefly confronted protesters after two women vandalised the wall of the ministry with graffiti reading «Police kill.»
The teenager had reportedly called the police three times to say she had been kidnapped while hitchhiking to her village from Caracal in southern Romania.
According to the reports, Gheorghe Dinca, a 65-year-old mechanic has confessed not only to the killing of Alexandra, but also 18-year-old Luiza Melencu who went missing in April.
