23 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) managed to gather some 500 people in the Universitate Plaza, protesting against the decision in the Constitutional Court, according to which CNSAS will cease its activity. CNSAS is the body that was enabled until last week to research the archives of the Communist political Police, Securitate, and to unveil the collaboration of dignitaries, clergy and civil society members with the institution.

All participants in the protest promised to return every day, until the CNSAS situation is solved.

The NGOs and a large share of the civil society saw the verdict as an attempt to maintain covered the former Securitate officers and collaborators.
