Expert: 'Mass' Expulsions of Roma Banned Under Human Rights Treaty

Plans for “mass” deportations of Roma from France may be against the European Convention on Human Rights, a Council of Europe expert has warned.

Maria Ochoa-Llido said in an 18 August BBC interview that the French government had signed up to the treaty which “prohibited” the “collective expulsions of aliens.”

The French government denies that the expulsion of Roma amounts to mass deportations.
