Principal cellist jumps from window during police raid
September 29, 2016 by norman lebrecht
There are two versions of what happened here.
Adrian Naidin, solo cellist of the Bucharest radio orchestra, says masked police on a drugs raid burst into his apartment early Wedneday morning. Panicked, he jumped from a first floor window, broke a finger in his right hand and was taken to hospital. He maintains the police mistook his address for a neighbour’s.
The police say they got the right address and found 500 grams of cannabis and 5 grams of cocaine.
Whatever the outcome, Adrian has cancelled his concert on October 10.
He says: ‘I am in the hospital because of police incompetence. This morning, a masked intervention patrol of the police raided one of my neighbours. Unfortunately, the police officers got the wrong door and thought that my apartment’s door gives them access to a haven for drug addicts, so they broke it and entered my place.’
