While adjudicating over applications of three Bosnian citizens of Roma ethnicity seeking interim measures in term of suspension eviction from Italy on Monday European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) Strasbourg issued directives to Italian government to provide temporary accommodation to Roma children and their parents.
Says a press release, the applicants are three Bosnian citizens of Roma ethnicity who were living with their families in a settlement in Ponte Riccio (Giugliano). Two of them are mothers with 10 children altogether, who are minors aged between two and 16.
On 5 April 2019 the Mayor of Giugliano issued Decree no. 29, ordering that all the settlement’s inhabitants be evicted for reasons of public health and safety. That order was carried out on 10 May.
The applicants currently live with their families in an improvised campsite in an industrial area outside Giugliano. On 16 May 2019 the applicants made a request to the Court under Rule 39 of its Rules of Court for an interim measure to require the State to provide them and their families with adequate accommodation and to suspend any further eviction.
The Court adjourned its examination of the request until 17 May 2019 after asking the parties to submit information. As it was not clear from the Government’s response to the Court’s questions whether the applicants
had been rehoused, the Court decided to apply an interim measure indicating to the Italian Government that it should provide temporary accommodation for the minors involved and their parents, without separating them.
It is pertinent to mention that European Court of Human Rights was set up in Strasbourg by the Council of Europe Member States in 1959 to deal with alleged violations of the 1950 European Convention on Human Rights.
