EWL Statement of Concern on Expulsion of Roma from France (October 2010)

The European Women’s Lobby condemns the expulsion of Roma from France and calls for more European and national actions to ensure that the fundamental rights of Romani women, men and children living in Europe are fully respected. The EWL welcomes in this regard the Resolution adopted by the European Parliament on 9 September as well as the action by the European Commission (EC) requesting France to fully transpose the Directive on free movement, but regrets the EC decision not to pursue France with legal proceedings for discriminating against Roma.
