Young men shot in the street at Timisoara
Gun shots in the middle of the street, on Wednesday night at Timisoara. Two youths – a man and his girl friend – arrived at the hospital after they were shot by a rival of the man with a rubber balls pistol. The scandal seems to have started from an older row. The 22 year-old man, together with his girl friend arrived at the hospital with several injuries. The young man was shot in the throat, the chest, the back, hands and legs, and the girl in the shoulder. Immediately after the shooting, the gunman disappeared. A year ago, Timisoara police officers had already interfered in a scandal in which the main actors were the same two young persons.
Raids at the houses of some underworld members
Important effectives of the General Information and Internal Protection Division, SPIR and Bucharest Police, accompanied by prosecutors proceeded on Thursday morning to as many as 22 simultaneous searches at the houses of several members of some underworld clans from Bucharest, Calarasi and Ilfov. Targeted were several persons suspect of robbery, blackmail and sequestration. Apparently, among the victims there are also several advisers from Calarasi. Commissioner Christian Ciocan, spokesman of Bucharest Police, declared for Antena 3 that besides threats and robberies, the offenders obliged workers to work for them without paying them. Moreover, the workers were aggressed physically if they tried to resist.
Minor accidents settled amicably
As of July 1, the minor road accidents, involving only material damages, can be settled amicably, between the drivers of the involved vehicles, without the documents issued so far by the police. In the case of the amicable understanding, the insurance companies analyze the circumstances in which the accident takes place and establish who is guilty. The persons who will sign such a form will not pay fines and will not be taken away points, they will only pay the next year a bigger insurance police. If one of the drivers refuses to sign this amicable understanding form, the drivers involved in the accident are obliged to go to the police. The utilization of the form is not compulsory, it is only an alternative to the current procedure.
