Amnesty International condemns arrest of Moldovan protesters

Amnesty International announced that nine Moldovans arrested in Chisinau on August 30 will be considered "prisoners of conscience" if they are sentenced to prison. The nine, members of the nongovernmental organization Hyde Park, participated in a demonstration in Chisinau on August 30 in which they demanded that a statue for Romanian writer Liviu Rebreanu be erected. According to a September 11 Amnesty international press release, the group had been granted official permission for the demonstration, but were nevertheless detained by police and held for 40 hours and were denied access to a lawyer.
