On March 18 2004, during a violent house search, Madalina Dumitru was filmed, against her will, barely dressed, treated brutally, threatened, the gun pointed to her head by masked men for over 14 hours, and the tape were broadcasted on all TV channels, damaging severely her image During the search she was absolutely denied the right to get in contact with her family or with her lawyers, though she insistently requested it. The violent actions of the Romanian authorities represent a serious violation of the right to freedom and security, of the right to defense, of the right to respect one's private life and of the right to one's own image. In fact , the authorities attempted to create a state of terror which would determine the minor to sign a declaration forced by the investigators, the goal being to charge Mr. Bivolaru with sexual intercourse with a minor.

To this effect, the prosecutor used a variety of manipulating strategies: from a friendly conduct (the investigator being helped by a psychologist), insults, assaults and threats, to effective violence (the investigator pulling the minor's hair). She was suggested to write that Mr. Bivolaru was her yoga teacher, and that it would be better both for her and for Mr. Bivolaru to declare that she knew him since the summer of 2001 (when she was not 15 yet). This shows the clear objective of setting up a charge against Mr. Bivolaru. Under pressure and terror, Madalina Dumitru gave in and signed that declaration based on untrue facts, in the absence of her lawyer. It is anyway easy to understand why a 17 years old girl signs a declaration against her will after 14 hours of abuses, out of which 8 hours faced down on the floor in her house, with a fire gun pointed to her head. Several of the fundamental human rights were consequently breached: right to liberty and security, right to defense, prohibition of torture, cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.
