The child was taken off the street and forced to climb into a luxury car with Italian licence plates. The kidnappers then demanded the parents a RON 50,000 ransom. Negotiations were conducted in a hotel, but the police were informed of the case and managed to detain the kidnappers and release the boy. The kidnappers were to be taken before the court yesterday, with a remand request. If they are found guilty on charges of kidnapping, they risk serving between seven and 15 years in jail.
