Romania loses case before European Court of Human Rights: The damages for a Roma family due to police brutality

The European Court of Human Rights ordered Romania to pay damages to the Lindurra family whose members were injured during a brutal police intervention by its officials. The incident occurred in the morning on December 15, 2011, in the city of Valceule, in western Romania.

The family will receive a total of EUR 49,000 in damages. According to information on this verdict announced by the court, the police broke the front door of the house of Lynggar as the family slept.

The police pushed 4 people from the floor to the floor and started hitting them. Some of the policemen were under phantom and were from the special forces.
Then the police took two men into the yard and continued to beat them. They were then taken to the test and released the next day when they were also punished for allegedly illegal collection of trees.

The family was then housed in the local hospital for injuries and according to medical reports, their injuries were caused by hard and heavy objects (probably from truncheons). During the incident, the family was unarmed. and no member of the family has ever been previously convicted or under any judicial inquiry.

According to the court, there was no reason for the police to act in such a brutal way. The family in 2012 filed charges including police officers, but the courts in Romania refused to consider it more than once, saying that allegedly there was insufficient evidence.

The change in the whole case was not until 2014 when this case reached the European Court of Human Rights. The court found that the case was admissible and ruled that the attack was brutal and unacceptable in a country that adopted the European Convention on Human Rights.

The court also rejected the police version of the events where they claimed that the Roma were intervening and opposed during the action. At the same time it was shown that during the brutal assault racial intolerance was highlighted as police assumed that the family had a criminal record only according to ethnicity.

In the opinion of the court, it is referred to as "institutional racism" or racism committed by state institutions, which often happens in Romania, and this case is one of those examples. The proceedings before the European Court of Human Rights lasted nearly 5 years and the family won.

The court ordered the state to pay to each injured member of the family EUR 11 700 euros as non-pecuniary damage, and another EUR 2 251 to cover the costs arising from the filing of the lawsuit. A total of 85 policemen were deployed during a brutal attack by the Roma community in the city of Valcea, where besides the attack on the Lingurr family, other Roma people from the Roma community attacked.

Roma Democratic Union - RDS analysis (part one) - Why are Roma fighting for equitable employment in the framework of employment, and not under the guarantees of the Constitution?

The Macedonian (foreign) invention: "Framework Agreement" according to the mentality of citizens in our country has become as a kind of "social" Quran or a Bible among us! Wherever we "lock" the work we "catch" for the Framework and equitable representation. The mindset of common sense is still packaged in our "closed minds" and we do not try to resonate things of a general human character and reason, we are "slapping" it and taking comparisons with percentage representation.

But why are not we guided by the Constitution and its guarantees? Here is an example to look at Article 9 of the Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia which says:

1. Civil and political freedoms and rights
Article 9
The citizens of the Republic of Macedonia are equal in their freedoms and rights, regardless of sex, race, skin color, national and social origin, political and religious beliefs; property and social status. Citizens before the Constitution and the laws are equal!

So we are all equal regardless of everything! No matter what nationality we belong here, we are all the same. Logically, no percentage representation, no requirements for its application, and so on. The Republic of Northern Macedonia needs to give equal chance to all, and not for example, we need Roma to ask for some percentage of administrative representation, perhaps, 2, 3, or I do not know how many percent! It is not necessary to follow this path at all, but the demands to be directed from the basis of the Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia.

Imagine this situation when it would function in some other world states. How much would it sound silly and illogical. For example, in the United States, when the Macedonian logic would be implemented. In the state administration according to the "Macedonian invention of Ramkoven", the public administration would be: Americans 50%, Canadians 20%, Mexicans 7%, Spanish 6%, Italians 5%, Chinese and South Coreans 4% Irish 2% African Americans 6%, Navajo Indians 2 %. Apache 2%, Siouxie 2%, Iroquois 2%, Eskimo 1%, Amish 1% ....

The second point is also interesting. The official and unique official language of the entire territory of the United States is English. And we all know that in the American continent, 35% of the total population speaks Spanish - mother tongue, but he is in the official protocol of us "S" from Spanish, yet America is the most democratic!

Do not ... Parallels have a small million, but what message does it take to get out?
Are you holding the logic? What are we special in order to "double"? But the RDS analysis will continue ... (Continued)

Landfill wild settlements - in hell of Skopje

One of the thorny social and environmental problems that have been bothering Skopje for decades is the improvised dwellings in the city - Vardariste, near Kaleto, Keramidnica.
Only in Vardariste, from which constantly burns and smokes, live around 400 Roma. Throughout Macedonia in Macedonia there are such Roma improvised settlements, writes "O2 Initiative".

In terms of pollution, the problem is massive. From the aspect of socialism is terrible. Some of these people are so-called. phantoms, people without documents, part came from Kosovo. In 2011, 441 "phantoms" were determined in the country, and only 30-50 such cases are solved annually.

Children who do not go to school are the first exposed to terrible pollution from improvised dwellings, from the burning of tires and other waste in winter for heating, from the business of ignition of cables to reach the copper, which is sold in black (1kg for 200 up to 300 denars).

Others collect plastic bottles and cartons sold in the purchase centers for waste (for 1kg of plastic bottles, they receive 13 denars, about 220 denars for one big bag of plastic bottles).

Unofficially: In the announced purge from Zaev, is the armchair of the only minister of the Roma?

After the conclusion of the first round of the Presidential elections in the country, and according to the perception of the main parties of the SDSM, they understand the message from the people, and that it is a clear purge in their ranks and coalition partners immediately after the end of the second round of the presidential elections.

According to the course of events, they have already begun with rewards that might be on that list, among the Roma connoisseurs of political developments, they immediately started considering this option, and whether in that "same case will be included some Roma names."
More precisely, if we say that the SDSM's Roma coalition partners were modest in their demands for high positions, i.e. there are no sound functions (managers of institutions, public enterprises, etc.), only as an option unofficially began to spread information that it is possible and the only ministerial place managed by a Roma may be and it is taken!
Realistically, the ministry itself (Minister without Resor) does not have any role in the Government, it is a fact that this is still to be taken and then the Roma according to the government hierarchy will be one ZERO. This would demonstrate even more the indolence of this composition of the Government towards Roma issues.

And honestly, the minister himself who is now the appointed minister will be only a scapegoat by the government as a message to discipline "the indolent Roma electorate, who apparently abstained in the first round of presidential elections. But he abstained and rightly, because from much promised - very (almost nothing) done.
And now, even curse, Mustafa Bayram will eat the stick. And the real man is actually the least guilty, because very little time is on that function to show some results.

But it must be a "self" empty. But if it's all true, this is the inclusion of the alarm with the inscription "How Much Worth Does the Real Rome Have in This Country?"
This is for the sake of those Roma parties that are in coalition with the government!
