14 September 2010 - The European Commission launches an infrigement action against France for violation of EU law

The European Commission finally reacted today, Tuesday, September 14th 2010, to Roma deportations occuring in France since August 2010.

The European Commissioner to Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, Mrs. Reding, stated today that she was "offended" by French authorities’ behaviour towards Roma and she explained that the Commission will launch an infrigement action against France, because it considers that Roma deportations are in breach with EU law.
