On 31 August 2009, the Romani inhabitants of a settlement underneath the Gazela Bridge in Belgrade were forcibly evicted in less than three hours. This eviction was carried out without the safeguards required under international law. This report documents the forced eviction of Gazela, outlines the human rights violations which took place and, considering the continuing threat of further forced evictions, makes recommendation to the Serbian authorities.
