Letter to the European Commission on Discrimination against Roma in Slovenia

15/03/2011 – Amnesty International has written the European Commission to draw their attention to our latest report published on 16 March 2011 entitled Parallel lives: Roma denied rights to housing and water in Slovenia. The report reveals that many Romani families in that country are living in poorly built, overcrowded shacks in isolated and segregated rural settlements, far from health-care services, schools, employment and shops. They also live in fear of forced evictions and are rarely consulted or told about the choices available to them.
