Anna Koptova v. Slovak Republic

 

(Communication No. 13/1998), UN Doc. CERD/C/57/D/13/1998 (2000)

Subject:

Article 5 (d) (i) – Right to freedom of movement and residence:

Prohibitions on settlements and other restrictions placed on Roma families by local municipalities in the Slovak Republic.

Conclusion:

No violation of Article 5:

The restrictions on freedom of movement and residence were rescinded so that CERD did not find that they represented a violation of Article 5. Nevertheless CERD recommended that the Respondent State take necessary measures to ensure that practices restricting the freedom of movement and residence of Roma were fully eliminated.

(Paragraph 10.3)
