Racism in Europe on the rise 2/21/2007
21 February 2007

AMSTERDAM – The number of racist statements has increased dramatically in Europe over the past year. This was certainly the case in the Netherlands, France, Italy and Belgium, said European Commissioner for Justice Franco Frattini after a visit to the Holocaust monument in Berlin on Tuesday.

The number of racist statements reportedly grew by between 25 and 45 percent in these four countries. In one EU country, which Frattini did not want to name, racism increased by as much as 70 percent.

Frattini based his comments on still confidential figures from the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) in Vienna.

The EUMC said that the increase can partly be attributed to easier procedures for reporting racism and more publicity on the problem.
