10.1.2014. – ERRC: Slovakia Police Misconduct Case – Charges Against Victims Dropped

The District Prosecutor’s Office in Košice I. has dropped criminal proceedings against a young Romani man who was accused of committing a criminal offence during a controversial police action at a Roma settlement. The District Prosecutor’s concluded that no criminal offence against the police had been committed during the police action in June 2013, in the Budulovska neighbourhood, Moldava nad Bodvou. The decision can still be reviewed.

The European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC) welcomes this decision and hopes that now the last criminal proceedings against the victims have been dropped, the authorities will at last carry out an effective investigation of the motives of this police action.
