End institutional racism in the Austrian criminal justice system

Research by Amnesty International has found that institutional racism in the Austrian police and judicial organs is resulting in their failure to provide the same quality of service to all persons.
Foreigners and non-white Austrians are more likely to be suspected of crime and less likely to have their rights respected when they report it. They are also more likely to be ill-treated by the police and less likely to obtain redress.

Amnesty International has called on the Austrian authorities to take stronger action to eliminate racism in the police and ensure that all allegations of racist misconduct by law enforcement officials are effectively investigated and appropriately punished.

It is unfortunate that there is institutional racism in the Austrian criminal justice system, it should be ended immediately as it affects human rights.
