Strasbourg, September 10th, 2011. Thomas Hammarberg, the Commissioner for Human Rights, warns in the Council of Europe’s annual report of the serious situation in our country. The report reveals that over the past three years Italy has not made any progress where the protection of the rights of the Roma people and migrants are concerned. The Commissioner also stigmatizes the Italian politicians who use racist slogans in their election campaigns and in statements given to the media.
After the publication of the report, EveryOne Group – which periodically submits dossiers and complaints about human rights violations taking place in Italy to the Commissioner – is once again requesting the necessary legal tools for tackling the grievances of the Council, because mere general recommendations – as we have witnessed over the last few years – have proved ineffective, and make the work of the Council of Europe in the field of human rights pointless.
