Abuses persecutions and threats >>> People abused & discriminated >>> Declaration - Costica Cojocaru
Costica Cojocaru, firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Costica Cojocaru. I practice yoga and also Iím a yoga teacher inside of MISA, in Bucharest, from 20th of October 1993.
During all these years I had been confronted with many embarrassing situations because of the calumnies from mass-media and periodical abusive actions of the police.
On 18th of March 2004, I was driving my car on the Turturica street when I was stoped by the Romanian gendarmerie car and retained on the street on the order of the Mihai Mocanu procurator (PCA Bucharest).
They combed me out and seized my personal objects. I clamoured against this perquisition but they justified it telling me that they conduct an inquiry on Turturica street.
Although I asked them to show me a search warrant they didnít show me anything. Being intimidated by their verbal aggression I submit to perquisition. They took me my inimate pictures with my wife and some letters from my wife. They even read my personal letters.
It is not the first time when people who practice yoga on MISA get under such abusive treatments.
Iím asking myself why I fight in 1989 at revolution? Not for liberty? Not for my rights as a human being? But where are my rights today as a Romanian citizen in a democratic Romania?
In these actions of the authorities against MISA, I donít see anything else but a comunist system that continue to exist and who try abusively to crush the peopleís liberty of expression. What will we do now? Will we let them to destroy our privacy, our intimacy, our memories? Iím asking myself, it is necessary to be treated like slaves in our country in order to be admitted in the European Community?
