Ethnic minorities may be sent back to Kosovo

Members of ethnic minorities from Kosovo living in Switzerland may soon be sent home, the Federal Migration Office said on Friday.

Roma and Slav Muslims still faced discrimination at the beginning of the year, but the situation has now changed, Migration Office spokesman Roman Cantieni told German-language Swiss television.

He said their status should now be re-examined.

Kosovo, whose population is over 90 per cent Albanian, unilaterally declared itself independent of Serbia in February.

The Swiss Refugee Council believes any change is premature. Spokesman Yann Golay told the same programme that life is still difficult for minorities in Kosovo.
