European Parliament must investigate situation in residential institutions

Content warning: death, abuse

We are asking the European Parliament to investigate the impact of the pandemic in residential institutions. It should investigate why many people got sick and died in residential institutions and how countries failed to protect them.

We and 2 organisations (European Public Services Union and AGE Platform) made this demand in a letter today. We ask the European Parliament to conduct official European inquiry. The inquiry must discover what happened and set rules, so it doesn’t happen again.
