The Romanian police rejected media reports according to which some drivers were stopped on their way to Bucharest, where the biggest protest of the Romanian Diaspora is set to take place on Friday evening.
The communication department of the General Police Inspectorate said that “at national level, there is no case of a vehicle stopped in traffic and blocked from traveling to Bucharest.” It added that police forces are in traffic for the safety of drivers and to prevent accidents.
In a separate incident, a train locomotive broke down on a railway line near Bucharest. State-owned rail operator said that diesel locomotives instead on electric ones will be used on a rail segment between Chiajna and Gradinari stations.
Hundreds of people are protesting in front of the government building, calling for the resignation of the government.
