Bulgarian Authorities Urged to Halt Forced Evictions of Roma

29 June 2006

On June 29, 2006, international human rights organisations, the Centre on Housing Rights and Evictions (COHRE) and The European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC), have called for a halt to the planned eviction wave of Roma in Sofia in a letter addressed to the President of Bulgaria.

The Sofia Municipality in the Vazrazhdane district has announced that on 30 June 2006 it will forcibly evict Roma families from the Batalova vodenitza neighbourhood, also known as NPZ Sredetz. Many of the families have lived in this neighbourhood for almost a century and are now threatened with homelessness, as the Municipality has not offered compensation or resettlement.
