Romanian authorities have opened five criminal cases for the illegal use of drones during the anti-Government protests in Bucharest, according to the Romanian Police, reports local Mediafax.
The Police have identified and questioned five people who used drones during the protests.
“One needs a certificate of registration and a certificate of airworthiness to fly a drone. Otherwise, the act is an offense,” said Diana Sarca, communication office coordinator at the Romanian Police.
The five people risk a fine or even jail time. The authorities have taken the drones, and prosecutors will continue the investigation.
Meanwhile, the anti-Government protests have continued in Romania on Tuesday evening, for the 15th day in a row. Some 1,000 people gathered in Bucharest’s Victoriei Square to demand the Government’s resignation, while a few hundred others protested in other cities such as Cluj-Napoca, Iasi, Timisoara, and Sibiu.
