Take Him Down(stairs)

by | 5th, November 2003

‘WHEN a man from Mironeasa village in Iasi, Romania, was sentenced for trying to kill one of his neighbours, he screamed his innocence.

And then he ran. He hid for 11 years in the basement of his house. And that’s some going – since he was originally sentenced to eight years in jail.

Now 31 and under arrest, he says: “I stayed 11 years underground because I consider myself innocent. I don’t want to go to jail for something I never did.

‘I hid under the house and went out only a few times for food supplies. But there were people who knew where I was and I think somebody betrayed me”.’
