Slovaks selling land cheap to Romani settlement residents – Romea.cz

“News server iDNES.cz reports that the Slovaks are contemplating what to do with illegal Romani settlements in their country. One such settlement is in the village of Krásnohorské Podhradie, where part of the land is owned by neo-Nazi Marián Kotleba, who has threatened to demolish all of the small Romani homes currently on his property. Now Erika Gažiková, a member of the Romani community there, made enough extra money gathering berries and mushrooms this summer to purchase the land around her home in the Romani settlement from the village, as have other Romani residents.

Gažiková paid EUR 0.66 per square meter. That’s the price of a small beer in Prague. About 900 Romani people live in the settlement where Kotleba owns approximately 800 square meters of land. He has threatened several times to raze the small homes on his land where Romani people are now living.”
