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.
