Luxembourg

Yearbook 2010

According to COUNTRYAAH, Luxembourg's European Commissioner Viviane Reding caused resurrection when she accused France of treating Roma as badly as Jews during World War II in unusually harsh terms. Reding threatened to bring France before the European Court of Justice for violations of rules on free movement. She was particularly upset that the government decried that deportations ordered were not specifically targeted at Roma, which turned out to be false. French President Nicolas Sarkozy countered that Luxembourg should receive the unwanted Roma. Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn then accused Sarkozy of maliciously equating the Commissioner, who represents the EU, with Luxembourg.
