Thousands of protesters gathered in Bucharest yesterday after the Romanian police chief was sacked over the killing of Alexandra, a 15-year-old teenager who made three emergency calls when kidnapped, even giving him directions about his location.

According to critics, the authorities failed to take appropriate action and act too late to rescue a victim known as Alexandra Macesanu.

In the midst of cries and insistence for the government to resign, protesters laid down garlands and candles at home-made memorials outside the interior ministry late yesterday.

According to prosecutors, a 65-year-old suspect Gheorghe Dinca has been detained after the investigator searched his house and discovered the human skeleton and the jewelry belonging to the victim.

The suspect repeatedly insisted he was innocent and had never met the victim but failed to explain why the teenager Alexandra used the suspect’s cell phone.

Home Minister Nicolae Moga late Friday announced he fired police chief Ioan Buda for drastic action needed in the case that sparked various rivals.

Police said the victim was abducted last Wednesday while trying to ride a vehicle to return home at Dobrosloveni in southern Romania.

The victim on the morning managed to call 112 emergency line three times and gave directions to the police regarding the location she was confined.

Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dancila said she was considering calling a referendum to introduce harsher sentences for rapists, pedophiles and murderers.
