Paris, 19/10/2010 – The European Union suspended its disciplinary action against France on Tuesday for the expulsions of Roma migrants, saying that Paris had made sufficient commitments to rectify shortcomings in its immigration laws. The announcement was greeted with dismay by human rights’ groups, who fear that Brussels has handed a public relations victory to President Nicolas Sarkozy and worry about a lack of transparency from his government. Mr. Sarkozy said that he was “very happy that reason had triumphed” and that the decision “closes a period of controversy.”
