ENAR files against Slovakia over racism

The NGO European Network Against Racism (ENAR) is filing a petition with the European Commission against Slovakia’s failure to respect and apply the European directive on prohibition of racism and discrimination, and even its national anti-discrimination legislation, reports daily SME.

“In Slovakia discrimination and expressions of racism have been on the rise since 2005″, said head of the Kosice branch of ENAR Slovensko, Miroslav Lacko, adding that these are not only directed at the Roma population, although they are normally the victims.

At present the European Commission is putting together a framework for national strategies for dealing with Roma integration, which it should publish in April. Lacko feels that this is a good step forward for eliminating discrimination and social exclusion in Europe.
