Answer from Albanian authorities

Several Roma families have recently been evicted and denied alternative accommodation. In a letter to the Albanian authorities we demanded them to protect the families from forced evictions.

The Office of the Prime Minister answers that the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities has been assigned to rebuild an area in Tirana with an estimated budget of 400.000 euro. In collaboration with the Ministry of Defense, UNDP and Roma Community Associations they will supply the area with required infrastructure, including an education center.
