Bayer s anti-Roma remarks "unacceptable", says Reding

Brussels, January 10 (MTI) - Hungarian journalist Zsolt Bayer s recent remarks concerning the Roma minority are unacceptable, Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the European Commission, said on Thursday.

Brussels, January 10 (MTI) - Hungarian journalist Zsolt Bayer s recent remarks concerning the Roma minority are unacceptable, Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the European Commission, said on Thursday.

The European Union has no room for racism, hate speech or any other forms of intolerance, Reding was quoted in the Austrian press as saying.

 

In an article published last Saturday, Bayer commented on a recent stabbing involving Roma suspects, writing that "a significant number of Gypsies are unsuitable for co-existence ... These Gypsies are animals and act as animals ... they should not be tolerated or understood but punished."

 

Reding welcomed that Hungary s Deputy Prime Minister Tibor Navracsics had condemned Bayer s remarks. She said she expected Hungary s officials to remind residents of the merits that earned the EU the Nobel Peace Prize, adding that the dignity of all citizens should be respected.

 

Reding, who is responsible for justice, fundamental rights, and citizenship in the EU, responded to an appeal by Austrian Socialists in the European Parliament concerning Bayer s article.
