Courtroom evacuated after inmate threatens to commit suicide

A courtroom at the Fourth District Court was evacuated Wednesday after an inmate injured himself on the neck with a knife as he was standing before the judge and threatened he would kill himself if justice is not served, Mediafax informs. Inmate Ibram Manet jumped out of the stand for the accused and climbed a grid in the courtroom. In the end, approximately two hours after the protest, he gave up and climbed off the grid and was immobilized by police officers. The inmate will be incarcerated again at the Giurgiu Penitentiary and an investigation will be open in this case.
Ibram Manet had been convicted for theft and a hearing was scheduled yesterday to contest a sanction decision against him ordered by the judge in charge. Presumably, he has mental problems and is known for prior extreme forms of protest, as he has made threats before to commit suicide if justice is not served and he is not released. In November 2009, Ibram Manet was responsible for a similar outburst at the First District Court in Bucharest. During a case review meeting before the judge, Ibram Manet broke the window behind the accused stand and threatened to cut his throat with a shard. His claim was that he was being discriminated against for his homosexuality. On October 4, 2006 Ibram Manet climbed the rooftop of Oradea prison and threatened to throw himself off the building if his demands were not met.
