Special rapporteur for housing says plight of hundreds of migrants breaches their human rights
France must act on the “dire” living conditions of migrants and refugees sleeping rough in Calais and stop systematically evicting people from tents in violation of the right to adequate housing, the United Nation’s housing envoy has warned.
Leilani Farha, the UN’s special rapporteur for housing, highlighted the “harsh conditions” of an estimated 600-700 migrants and refugees currently homeless and sheltering in tents or makeshift camps on the northern French coast with “extremely limited access to emergency shelter”. Many have come to northern France because they hope to reach Britain.UN urges France to act on 'dire' living conditions of refugees
