Municipality of Halandri handed list of locations for Roma resettlement

The Regional Administration for Attica, which is part of the central government, on Wednesday provided the Municipality of Halandri with a list of 16 locations that Roma currently living in a camp next to the Nomismatokopeio metro station can move to.

Earlier this month, authorities knocked down uninhabited shacks at the camp but met resistance in their efforts to move the Roma.

The government has suggested 16 other spots within Halandri that they could move to and where accommodation would be built for them.

The Attica Regional Administration said that it would wait for a response from Halandri officials regarding which of the land plots is most suitable.
