The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Union are providing a loan to SC Vital S.A., to fund a project for the extension and rehabilitation of the waste water and waste infrastructure in the Romanian town of Baia Mare. This project has led to forced evictions of Romani families in the Craica settlement in Baia Mare. On 5 August 2013, in accordance with demolition orders issued by the Department for Constructions, between 10 and 15 Romani households were forcibly evicted and their homes demolished.
