Police trade union wants Interior Ministry’s protocols with SRI, PICCJ and DNA verified: “We don’t and won’t agree with interference in police matters”

The Romanian Police Agents’ National Trade Union is asking the Interior Ministry (MAI) to verify the collaboration protocols signed with the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI), the High Court of Justice’s Prosecutor’s Office (PICCJ) and the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA), pointing out that it disagrees with abuses committed in the name of these documents.

“Madam Minister, we are asking you to order the necessary measures to verify the collaboration protocols signed by the Interior Ministry and the main state institutions, namely the Romanian Intelligence Service, the High Court of Justice’s Prosecutor’s Office and the National Anticorruption Directorate,” Adrian Diugu, President of the Romanian Police Agents’ National Trade Union, states in a public communique sent to the Interior Ministry.

The members of the trade union want to know whether these protocols were legally signed, when they were signed and by whom, but also what were the interests that justified their signing. In the communique sent to Minister Carmen Dan, the members of the trade union explain that police officers are dissatisfied with the other institutions’ interference in their investigations.

“Maybe you will wonder what is the reason for our organisation’s interest in the ‘collaboration’ with these institutions and that is why we inform you that our members, police officers or border police officers, have brought to our attention many cases in which they ran up against the ‘effects’ of these protocols. We understand the need for documents that stipulate the conditions of collaboration between the Romanian Police and the other institutions involved in the act of justice or national defence, as well as the need for intelligence. Nevertheless, we don’t and we won’t agree with interference in police matters, with the Romanian police officer being rendered a subordinate in the relationship with the representatives of other institutions or with abuses that some are committing while invoking the ‘protocol,’” the communique adds.
