Nearly 400,000 of Serbia's Gypsies have no identification documents and therefore local authorities treat them as nonexistent, a minority center said Friday.
The Gypsies in question live in "wild settlements" on the outskirts of towns or in cardboard homes in side streets in Belgrade. Since they have no registered address they cannot report their residence to obtain ID cards, Belgrade's Center for minority rights said.
Without an ID card, the Gypsies cannot send children to school and lose social and healthcare benefits, Belgrade's B92 radio reported.
Serbia's official statistics say about 150,000 Gypsies live in the country but Gypsy leaders put their population at between 500,000 and 800,000.
