18.6.2014, ERRC – ERRC Urges French Authorities to Fully Investigate Lynching of Romani Minor

The European Roma Rights Centre expresses its deep concern regarding the brutal lynching of a 16-year-old Romani boy in France. The ERRC urges French authorities to investigate the attack, in particular any possible racial motivation, and to bring the perpetrators to justice.

French President Francois Hollande condemned the attack as “unspeakable and unjustifiable” and wants “everything to be done” to find the perpetrators.”

The ERRC welcomes President Hollande’s remark and hopes that this statement will speed up the investigation process. We expect racial motivation to be taken into account during the investigation and prosecution of those responsible.
