Different versions of New Year’s race-based brawl in Zlaté Moravce emerge – The Slovak Spectator

Now People against Racism says a witness has contacted the group claiming that in his address on New Year’s Eve, local Mayor Peter Lednár made repeated racist comments about the need to protect what he called “the white race” in Zlaté Moravce from “parasites”. After the speech, two skinheads allegedly attacked Roma children, but the children’s parents arrived and chased the skinheads away. The witness said, as quoted by the SITA newswire, that another group of skinheads then emerged from a nearby bar and launched a verbal attack on the Roma, using racially-motivated insults. However, the skinheads later called the police, claiming they were being attacked; the Roma did not. The witness confirmed that the police did not intervene as, according to him, there was no-one to intervene against because after protecting their children the Roma had left.
