European countries must stop forced evictions of Roma
Nils Muižnieks, Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, released letters to the governments of Albania, Bulgaria, France, Hungary, Italy, Serbia and Sweden pointing out serious forms of discrimination and human rights violations by national and local authorities against Roma people.
“Evictions are often carried out without prior consultation with the families concerned and at very short notice, while adequate alternative accommodation is often not provided”, says Nils Muižnieks. Unfortunately, this situation increases the vulnerability of Roma families, prevents their social inclusion and impedes any prospect of regular schooling for their children.
He affirms that Member states have to abide by their human rights obligations, by stopping such measures and investing more in finding durable housing solutions for Roma families.
