Authorities should be more effective in fighting violence targeting the Roma and against human trafficking they are most exposed to in Europe, members of the European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC) told a press breakfast in Budapest on Wednesday.

Robert Kushen, the Executive Director of ERRC noted that although investigating violent crimes against the Roma is clearly a state responsibility those efforts often remain ineffective.

 

He said human trafficking is not the same as human smuggling, in which case those smuggled may move freely after taken across the border, and it should not be confused with immigration either, which is in general the individual's free choice.

 

Judit Geller, a legal expert of ERRC, said there had been no authentic statistical data about crimes committed against Roma people and many might have not been investigated at all. As regards human trafficking a large proportion of the Roma in Hungary have become a target, she said, adding that 80 percent of all female victims of human trafficking are Roma. She said Hungary is both a supplier and a transit country, from where most of the victims are taken to Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland. She urged a more effective training for authorities to be better prepared to tackle that issue and identify victims.

 

Geller criticised the government for not giving enough importance to the issue and failing to include NGOs in related efforts.

 

ERRC is a Budapest-based international Roma rights organisation set up in 1996.
