UK Association of Gypsy Women concerns with the European Union Rule of Law Mission (EULEX) in Kosovo

Kosovo, 4.3.2010 23:05, (ROMA VIRTUAL NETWORK )

The UK Association of Gypsy Women have registered grave concerns with the European Union Rule of Law Mission (EULEX) in Kosovo, on the disgraceful and degrading treatment metered out by the Kosovo Police in an incident on the 5th February where reportedly, batons were used in a brutal and cowardly attack on a small group of Roma people, beating elderly and young men, women and children with batons also calling for reinforcements, simply because the people voiced their protest against officials moving desperately needed aid.

According to our information EULEX, is the largest civilian mission ever launched under the common security and defense policy, with approx 3,000 personnel. Its central aim is supposed to be, to assist and support the Kosovo authorities in the rule of law, specifically in areas of police and judiciary etc.

UKAGW have appealed to EULEX to advise Kosovo Police of the procedures that should be followed in such cases of serious complaint as the one reported on the 5th February which, in our humble opinion is a clear case of Police Brutality, we are also of the opinion that the police in this instance are in dire need of EULEX assistance and advice. Moreover, we sincerely hope EULEX will advise that a full investigation be launched with the immediate suspension of the officer’s concerned until the investigation is concluded and action to be taken thereof decided.
