An independent United Nations expert has called for immediate action to end discrimination and combat racist rhetoric against Roma, Europe’s largest minority group. The UN Special Rapporteur on minorities, Fernand de Varennes, on Monday said the governments must live up to their international human rights obligations to protect and promote the rights of the Roma people.“There is a need for more action to combat hate speech, intolerance and racially motivated-violence,” Mr de Varennes, in a statement on International Roma Day, also known as International Romani Day on April 8.
