Letter to EC on closure of infringement case v. Italy

Amnesty International calls on the European Commission to reconsider closing the infringement procedure case against Italy for discrimination against Roma in housing

Amnesty International; along with several key non-governmental organisations, intergovernmental organisations and monitoring bodies; firmly believe that discrimination against Roma in housing is ongoing and widespread in Italy. We would also underline that the purpose of the infringement procedure is to investigate, and there are sufficient grounds for such an investigation to be conducted under the auspices of a formal infringement proceeding by the Commission into the discriminatory practices of the Italian government towards Roma in the field of housing.
