Czech court once again handling case of racists who beat up Romani youth in Havířov

On the night of 8 November 2008, a larger group of violent racists set out onto the streets of Havířov “after agreeing that they intended to assault Romani passers-by”, as the charges read. In the neighborhood of Šumbark, after briefly chasing their victim, J.H., who was 16 years old at the time, they pushed him to the ground, beat him, and brutally kicked, particularly in the head, causing him serious, life-threatening injury. After this assault, the gang drove to another neighborhood, Prostřední Suchá, also predominantly inhabited by Romani people, and attempted to assault Romani passers-by there.
