Roma rights groups call for investigation into two fatal shootings by Romanian police | Daily news in English from Romania – Romania-Insider.com

“Roma rights groups are calling on the authorities to investigate two deaths involving Romania’s police force. Two separate incidents are reported.  In the first, on May 31 this year, police in Bucharest pursued two Romani men suspected of stealing construction materials. Police officers caught up to the suspects when they waded a little way out into Plumbuita Lake and it was at this point that one of the men, a 24 year old, was shot and killed by the officers.
