D’importants obstacles au signalement des crimes de haine dans l’UE entravent l’accès des victimes à la protection et à la justice, selon un nouveau rapport de l’Agence des droits fondamentaux de l’UE (FRA). De nombreuses victimes ne signalent pas les agressions subies, car elles jugent cela trop difficile ou ne font pas confiance à la police. La FRA appelle les pays de l'UE à encourager le signalement des crimes de haine, à améliorer leur enregistrement, et à faire en sorte que les victimes puissent obtenir soutien, protection et justice.
