UNAPEI, a French organisation run by families of people with intellectual disabilities, delivers today a black book to the French Social Security to denounce the exile of disabled French citizens placed in Belgium institutions. The distance of the placement makes visiting with family nearly impossible. The situation is not new having been denounced already in 1977. It has been defended with the argument that the cost was lower to place people in Belgium rather than in France. This is no longer the case, but even when it was cheaper, would other citizens be treated as economic pawns?
