On 26 April 2012, almost 1,000 Roma living in an informal settlement at Belvil in Belgrade were forcibly evicted by the city authorities. This forced eviction highlights how the Belgrade city authorities are still failing to comply with international human rights standards and the devastating impacts that such evictions have on people’s lives. Amnesty International believes that the only way to stop such violations is for the Serbian government to introduce legislation which prohibits forced evictions.
