In June 2004, around 100 Roma were forcibly evicted by municipal authorities from a crumbling building in Miercurea Ciuc. Some of them were moved to the outskirts of the city next to a sewage treatment plant. For more than five years, around 75 Romani people have been living in eight metal cabins and 14 self-constructed shacks in an area deemed unfit for human habitation. More than five years later, and after various court cases, the communities are still unable to realize their right to adequate housing.
