Diaconu, a human-rights expert and former head of the Romanian foreign ministry, also expressed concerns with recent changes in Canada’s immigration and refugee system and comments made by Immigration Minister Jason Kenney against Roma seeking asylum here.

“Now we hear about discrimination against Roma in Canada, this is something new,” Diaconu said. “The stigmatization, the stereotypes of Roma that were stated by the media or the minister, a new discrimination has arisen. The Roma are not accepted as refugees, they are rejected.”
