Letter from Minister of Justice Bojan Marichikj to EU MP Romeo Franz

 Thank you for your letter and the concern we both share about the unpleasant violent the incident against a group of Romani men that took place on September 22nd, 2020.

The police officers that took part in the excessive use of force were immediately identified by the Sector for Internal Control, Criminal Investigations and Professional Standards and I expect a quick and decisive action by the Ministry of Interior and further on the Public Prosecutor's Office in order for justice to be served.

You have my assurance that in my capacity as a Minister of Justice I will continue to have a strong voice against any injustices and make sure that systematic investigations and prosecutions are to be undertaken so that it does not happen again.

Please accept the assurances of my highest consideration.


MoJ Bojan Marichikj
