Human rights abuses in the Republic of Moldova

After the popular uprising in the Republic of Moldova on the 7th of April 2009 the government began a campaign of terror and human rights violations. In desperation Dorin Chirtoaca, the General Mayor of the Municipality of Chisinau, published a letter condemning these actions and appealing for help from the International community and the European parliament.

With the letter, the City Hall of Chisinau is also publishing pictures of victimes of acts of violonce and torture. The letter was designed to touch the moral cord and to raise serious legal issues in terms of human rights violations. The strategy is to use the Internet to spread the message as whidelly as possible in order to force western institutions to act.

See the letter from City Hall of Chisinau here.
