NEVER SAY AND JUDGE OTHER PEOPLE BEFORE LEARN ABOUT THEM WHO THEY ARE
Strasbourg, 01.09.2016 - Today, Valeriu Nicolae, a Romanian Roma, has taken up the post of Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) of the Council of Europe for Roma Issues.
"It is a great honour and responsibility for me to join the team of the Secretary General," said Nicolae. "I very much look forward to working for the Council of Europe and in particular with the SRSG Roma Support Team and continue advancing the human rights agenda in the Council of Europe member states."
"Since 1999, I have been closely following the development of the legal framework and the practical work carried out by the Council of Europe, seeking for solutions for the social inclusion of Roma and vulnerable groups at the grassroots level. I strongly believe in working together with member States and in building strategic alliances with all Council of Europe partners to achieve inclusive and open societies that respect human rights for all."
September 12, 1902 – August 22, 1976, known also by his initials JK, was a prominent Brazilian politician who was President of Brazil from 1956 to 1961. His term was marked by economic prosperity and political stability, being most known for the construction of a new capital, Brasília.
A leader who favored long-term planning and who set high goals for Brazil's future, Kubitschek is viewed inside the country as the father of modern Brazil. He stands among the politicians whose legacy is held most favorably. His legacy is marred, however, by continued rumors during his tenure of extramarital affairs and gambling problems.
Kubitschek was born into a poor family in Diamantina, Minas Gerais. His father, João César de Oliveira (1872–1905), who died when Juscelino was two years old, was a traveling salesman. He was raised by his mother, a schoolteacher named Júlia Kubitschek (1873–1973), of Czech and Romani origin.
