Romania: Treated like waste: Roma homes destroyed, and health at risk, in Romania
About 75 Roma people, including children, have been living in metal cabins and shacks next to a sewage treatment plant since 2004. They were moved to the area from a crumbling, city-centre building and told the move was temporary, and for their own safety. After more than five years, and various court cases, the continued violation of their right to adequate housing is beginning to feel very permanent. In this document Amnesty International urges the Romanian authorities to ensure that all those forcibly evicted have access to effective remedies.
