Outcry about registry of Roma in Sweden

Monday 23 Sep 2013, 14:08 (Update: 23-09-13, 14:40)

In Sweden there is an outcry over a police database containing thousands of names of Roma. The only reason for inclusion in the registry is Roma origin, most of the people listed have no criminal records.

The existence of the registry was revealed by the newspaper Dagens Nyheter and confirmed by the Swedish police. According to the newspaper, there are over 4,000 people in the database. A quarter of them are toddlers or preschoolers.

Bad reputation

Police would not say why the register is kept, but it is believed that it is done because of the bad reputation of Roma, mostly living in camps or on the streets. …

This reminds me of United States rocker Joan Jett‘s song “Bad Reputation”. Here is the music video.

The Swedish Minister for EU Affairs Ohlsson was shocked by the revelation about the Roma, who are considered to be Europe’s most discriminated minority. She calls the registry “frightening, unethical, unacceptable and illegal.”

Sweden has prohibited registration by ethnicity. In the Netherlands there is a ban on that as well, though there are municipalities which want more opportunities to register Roma.

French Interior Minister Manuel Valls has once again turned on the Roma, demanding their expulsion to Eastern Europe: here.
