Domestic Cases: Hungary

Children’s Rights


The case concerns the forceful removal of a new born baby from his family upon birth, an all-too-common occurrence for Roma families in Hungary. The baby was taken away from its mother few days after birth. The ERRC together with a local partner is providing legal representation to the mother to challenge the authorities.
