“The “anti-crime” march that took place last Saturday in the town of Dřevnovice in Prostějov district with the participation of right-wing extremists has raised tensions between some people in the majority society and some in the Romani community in the nearby town of Dobromilice, where a similar event is rumored to be in the works for tomorrow. Police have not confirmed that information. No assembly has been officially announced to the authorities in Dobromilice.
“We are examining the information we have from our sources, but we have not confirmed there will be a gathering. We are negotiating with municipal representatives and nonprofit organizations. However, the police cannot resolve all of these problems – there are social problems with children, housing, etc., there,” said Police Coordinator for Minorities Michaela Sedláčková. She confirmed that police officers are patrolling the municipality more frequently.”
