LETíS TAKE FRANCEíS INTERIOR MINISTER TO THE LAW COURT OF THE REPUBLIC
The Spanish branch of Unión Romaní has decided to bring to justice the French Interior Minister, Manuel Valls. To this end, and with the aim of uniting forces against such a powerful adversary, we have decided to support the case brought by Mouvement Contre le Racisme et pour L’Amité entre les Peuples (Movement Against Racism and for Friendship between Peoples), which has been put forward to the Law Court of the Republic, located in Rue de Constantine, in the 7th arrondissement of Paris.
The attached document lists the reasons why we believe that Manuel Valls has repeatedly behaved in a way that incites racial hatred, violence, and discrimination of the Roma community, which is particularly apparent in his racist comments of the 24th of September.
