EU: Documents on the latest developments regarding French deportation of Roma people


EU-Commission: Commissioner Reding speech: Statement on the latest developments on the Roma situation (pdf)

"Over the past weeks, the European Commission has been following very closely the developments in France regarding the Roma. I personally have been appalled by a situation which gave the impression that people are being removed from a Member State of the European Union just because they belong to a certain ethnic minority. This is a situation I had thought Europe would not have to witness again after the Second World War."
