Four jailed for Roma attack in Czech Republic
Thursday 21 October 2010
A Czech court has convicted four right-wing extremists of an arson attack on a Roma family, that badly injured a two-year-old girl, and sentenced them to long prison terms.
The four were charged with racially motivated attempted murder for an attack in April last year on a Roma family's house in the north-east town of Vitkov.
The girl, Natalka, suffered severe burns to 80 per cent of her body and was in a serious condition for months.
Judge Miloslav Studnicka said the trial proved that their intention was to kill the Roma family who lived in the house "because of their race".
