Project Description


The goal of the project is to harmonize the provisions of the Romanian laws/rules regulating the leading of an individual to the police/gendarmerie precinct with the definition of the UN Optional Protocol to the Convention Against Torture (OPCAT) (art.  4 par. 2) of “deprivation of individual freedom”.  The project's objectives are:

  • to document the Romanian juridical norms and practices related to the attributions of the law enforcement officers with regard to the deprivation of individual freedom;
  • to propose legal amendments to the Romanian relevant laws in order to eliminate arbitrary deprivation of freedom such as the leading of an individual to the police/gendarmerie precinct;
  • to advocate the legal amendments with public stakeholders;
  •  to build a constituency aimed at supporting the proposed changes among criminal law professionals, the civil society and the media.
