1. Declaration on 19 March 2004, withdrawing declaration taken under pressure on 18 March 2004
Madalina Dumitru, the minor ‘victim' in Gregorian Bivolaru's case, files a first declaration (given in the absence of a lawyer and after several hours on investigation) describing the circumstances in which she started yoga practice and met Gregorian Bivolaru, and also about her relationship with the latter. This is the declaration turned into a complaint by the authorities and used to incriminate Gregorian Bivolaru.
In the second declaration, given the following day, with the assistance of a lawyer, Madalina Dumitru withdraws her previous declaration, stating it was given under physical and mental pressure.
