STATEMENT FROM MESEMROM
Press Release in English
Geneva, 3rd of November 2009
Tuesday, the 3rd of November 2009 police officers, along with refuse dump, criss-crossed the city of Geneva in a real hunt, looking for all campments from the Roma comunity. They destroyed mattresses, tents, blankets and personal effects belonging to the Roma comunity. Men, women and children are tonight, destitute, homeless, without protection against the cold.
Mesemrom stresses that the social shelters are closed and open only on the 16th of November.
Mesemrom strongly condemns this police operation discriminatory and therefore unconstitutional, which puts in danger life of human persons, including children.
Mesemrom recalls that the city of Geneva is committed, particularly in the European Charter of Human Rights in the City, to provide assistance and protection for the vulnerable and needy people.
The Geneva authorities will be held liable for damage to health who may be caused by this deplorable operation.
