Discrimination against Roma by Romania's Ministry of Labour

"We are looking for bodyguards, 1.77 m, military service done, no Roma accepted" was the text of a job announcement, placed in Bucharest's 3rd Sector Labour Force Office. The Bucharest-based Romani non-governmental organisation Romani CRISS observed the announcement, posted by a private firm called S.C. Guard, on July 31, 2000. On August 3, Romani CRISS filed a complaint with the Romanian Ombudsman's Office. As of October 10, Romani Criss had not received an official response from the Ombudsman's office.
