MEPs refer to Slovakia: If you want to build motorways for Eurofunds, also solve settlement problems
If we want to build motorways in Slovakia, to reconstruct squares for Eurofunds, we will have to start with good projects for Roma settlements. “We treat them as an ethnic group that does not belong to Europe, which does not belong to Slovakia, as foreigners, and that is not true. Those people have lived among us for decades, hundreds of years. “ MEP Lucia Ďuriš Nicholson (RE).
The prince is to be similar to when Poland declared the so-called NO GO LGBTI zones. The answer came in the form of a stop for Eurofunds in this area. Poles eventually entered, LGBTI-free zones and canceled the drawdown of Eurofunds to continue. “The state must submit, in accordance with the various projects in each of the areas, be well approved and approved by the European Commission,“ MEP Robert Hajšel (SD) said. “In order for people of Roma origin to be better integrated into our society, to be more tolerated, to have the same social benefits as the majority population,” MEP Miriam Lexmann (KDH, EPP).
The millions of euros that Brussels has already sent are, for example, not assessed correctly, according to MEP Jurzyc. For example, 64% of the evaluation is the number of donated companies, 35% the amount of money received. “It doesn’t say much about the outcome either. And then the results. That’s just one percent of the whole rating. That should be the most, ” MEP Eugen Jurzyca (SaS, ECR).
“It always happens that at the end of the programming period we use it for something else or, in the worst case, return it to the European Union budget,” says MEP Peter Pollák (OĽaNO, EPP). “Until that life in a Roma settlement changes, life in that Roma settlement will not change either. When the situation in those Roma settlements gets worse, the lives of the people who live in those Roma settlements will also get worse. “ says Nicholson.
