In late 2013, it was revealed that the police of Scania had kept a register labled "kringresande", in English "travellers,"which contained the name of 4500 people with connections to the swedish travellers, a Rroma culture. Some of the people in this registry were dead, and around 1200 were children under the age of 18. In 2017, Swedish courts ruled that the registry was just based on ethnicity and gave 12 Rroma people the right to a compensation of 5000 crowns.
