"A team of security agents, sent specially to the border by Soviet militia general Vladimir Voronin, humiliated those people by keeping them [on the border] for several hours without whatever explanations. The agents confiscated the visitors' personal effects and several books by our literature classics Ion Agarbiceanu and Lucian Blaga", the document said.
