Stigmatizing Quarantines of Roma Settlements in Slovakia and Bulgaria
Bulgaria and Slovakia have put a number of Roma settlements under compulsory quarantine, arguing that such measures are necessary for the protection of public health and safety. Amnesty International is seriously concerned about the implementation and enforcement of the quarantine measures. Any measures that deliberately target entire communities, without evidence that such communities present a danger for public health during the pandemic, are likely to be arbitrary and disproportionate, and may constitute discrimination.
