Ahead of the European Day for Victims of Crime on 22 February, Vice-President Jourová and Commissioner Reynders issued the following statement: “This year marks the 30th anniversary of the European Day for Victims of Crime. Still, every year 75 million people across Europe continue to fall victims of crime. Only yesterday we mourned the victims of yet another the heinous act, this time in Hanau. Let us be very clear: racism and xenophobia have no place in Europe. We stand firm against all those who want to divide our societies through hate and violence.” The full statement is available online.
