Respected Excellency, 

At the beginning of this Protest Note, I would like to greet you in the name of the International Romani Union and on my behalf as the president. 

The purpose of this  Protest Note is to show our concern and disagreement in relation to  the recent happenings and suggestions given by the Minister of Interior Mr. Mateo Salvini and his "anti-roma sentiment" with a great focus on the special registration of the Romani people that reside in Italy. At the same time we are deeply concerned about the statement that all the Roma people that don't have their residence status regulated in the Republic of Italy, would be expelled!
