Amnesty International urges EU to pressure Bulgaria and Romania

Date: 23.10.2005

The human rights organization Amnesty International called on the European Union to keep up pressure on Bulgaria and Romania days before the annual monitoring reports on the two accession countries are released.

Amnesty International says these countries still present areas of concern where individuals' rights are violated in breach of international human rights standards.

In a briefing paper released on Wednesday, the human rights watchdog invited the EU to urge the Bulgarian and Romanian governments to guarantee the human rights of the mentally disabled, curb the use of excessive force by the police, prevent racism and discrimination against the Roma populations by effectively ensuring that discriminatory and racist actions do not go unpunished.
