Amnesty International is deeply concerned at the threat of imminent forced eviction by local authorities of approximately 1,300 Romanian Roma, living in the Gianturco informal settlement, in the city of Naples, southern Italy. Municipal authorities are planning to relocate 200 of the evicted Roma to a new segregated camp currently being built by the municipality, co-funded by the Ministry of Interior. Hundreds of the residents, including children, elderly, sick and disabled people, are at risk of being rendered homeless.
