7.7.2014, humanrightseurope.org – Nils Muižnieks: Hungary should do more for the human rights of Roma, migrants and disabled people

More should be done to protect the rights of Roma communities, migrants and disabled people in Hungary, according to human rights commissioner Nils Muižnieks.

Following a four-day visit to the country, Muižnieks revealed that Roma people continue to face segregation in both housing and education, in a “context of continuing intolerance within the country.”

The Commissioner for Human Rights welcomed the ban imposed on the Hungarian Guard and the steps taken by the authorities to ban other racist organisations and encouraged vigilance against anti-Roma prejudice.
