On the 5th of March, Civil Rights Defenders files suit against the Swedish state for violations of human rights. We represent eight adults and three children from the 4700 Roma individuals who were originally registered by the Skåne police. We are convinced that they were in the register merely because of their ethnic origin. This, however, is not the reason why the register has been declared illegal.In order to demonstrate that the police register constitutes a case of ethnic registration, we file suit the Swedish state. We also claim that the 5000 SEK (approximately 500 EUR) that have been awarded to the victims as monetary compensation is far from adequate.We demand that the state take responsibility for the register and grant the affected individuals adequate redress.
