League I: Violent incidents before Steaua vs. Petrolul

A column of vehicles carrying Petrolul Ploiesti fans who were heading to Bucharest’s National Arena stadium for the game against Steaua on Sunday evening (final score 1-1), was stopped by law enforcement officers and ordered to go back before entering Bucharest, Agerpres informs. The gendarmes state that the measure was taken after the fans behaved aggressively, however the Petrolul fans claim they were innocent and threaten they will sue the Gendarmerie. “During their trip towards Bucharest the Petrolul fans stopped the column of vehicles near Domnesti locality, came out of the vehicles and became very violent, being under the influence, throwing bottles and rocks at the law enforcement units that were accompanying the column, breaking the windows of the buses and minibuses. The fans were traveling in 10 buses, several minibuses and personal vehicles. In order not to put at risk the other fans present at the game we took the decision to turn the column of vehicles back towards Ploiesti,” Georgian Enache, spokesperson of the Bucharest Gendarmerie, stated. Bogdan Dinu, one of the Petrolul fans, stated on Monday that the “Yellow Wolves” Association will file a complaint against the Gendarmerie, claiming that the latter committed an abuse. Several fans showed up at the Ploiesti County Hospital on Monday in order to pick up medical certificates, Bogdan Dinu stating that approximately 20 fans, including women, were injured by the gendarmes.
