Strasbourg, 17.06.2014 – Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland joined President Hollande and many politicians and rights groups in France in their condemnation of a vigilante attack on a Roma teenager in a Paris suburb. Speaking in The Hague after a meeting with Dutch Foreign Minister Timmermans, Mr. Jagland said: “Such attacks, whatever the motivation, are shameful and inexcusable. It is good to see the French government and so many responsible people in France and across Europe taking a strong stand against discrimination and attacks on Roma".
