France handed ultimatum in Roma row | EurActiv

“The European Commission has decided to take France to task regarding its summer crackdown on illegal Roma camps, giving Paris until 15 October to prove that its policies comply with EU laws guaranteeing the free circulation of people.

Brussels has threatened to launch legal proceedings against France for failing to implement EU laws on the free circulation of people, standing its ground in the ongoing standoff over France’s Roma deportations.

Paris was given until 15 October to respond.

“The right of every EU citizen to free movement within the Union is one of the fundamental principles of the EU,” the Commission said in a statement.

“At this stage, the Commission considers that France has not yet transposed the Directive on Free Movement into national legislation.”

A letter of formal notice will be sent to France requesting the full transposition of the directive, “unless draft transposition measures and a detailed transposition schedule are provided by 15 October 2010″.”
