Amnesty International released on Friday the annual 2010 report on the human rights situation across the world. Romania has three pages in the report, all focused on the issue of Roma. Roma were discriminated against in 2010 in terms of access to education, households or jobs, the report reads.
Several governmental officials made racist comments against the Roma, the Amnesty International report reads. Baconschi is quoted in the report as the Foreign Affairs minister who connected criminality to the Roma community. President Basescu’s declarations in Slovenia, when he qualified the Roma as delinquents, people that are hard to integrate and unwilling to work also appear in the report.
