Sweden attacked for "false" discrimination report

Sweden is painting a false picture of discrimination in its report to the UN, says a human rights group.

”The report makes it seem as though everything is being dealt with,” says human rights lawyer Johanna Westeson at Civil Rights Defenders to newspaper Dagens Nyheter.

The group raises issues of discrimination against the Roma and Sami peoples in its own shadow report to the UN.

Sweden’s report will be background material for the coming UN investigation of human rights in Sweden, which will happen in January 2015.
