Orwellian Positively Orwellian Part III A fistful of bullets

Engineer Dan Iliescu (no apparent relation to Ion Iliescu), an employee of the Museum of National Art located in the old Royal Palace across from the CC building, alleged in December 1990—therefore prior to the above claim by, and response to, Stanculescu—that those who fired from the museum onto the square below on 22 and 23 December

…had weapons which sounded different.  They had a healthy cadence.  The next day [23 December 1989] and over the following days I found bullets in the Museum.  They were not normal bullets.  They had a rounded head.  They appeared to have a lead jacket.  It was of a caliber between five, five something. The USLAsi [USLA, Special Unit for Anti-terrorist Warfare] did not want to leave us a bullet.  I asked them to leave me one as a memento.  They did not want to.  They said that they needed them for the purpose of identification.  They noted where they gathered them from.
