Town of Malacky wants to relocate Roma families
19 Jul 2011 Flash News
Roma families allegedly causing problems on Družstevná Street in Malacky in Bratislava Region may be relocated to other parts of the town or to its surroundings, the TASR newswire wrote, based on documents drawn up by a working group of the Government Proxy for Roma and representatives of the local government in Malacky.
Duchoňová said that her office does not view the dispute as an ethnic problem but as a personal conflict between neighbours. Nevertheless, she said her office views the behaviour of the Roma families as undesirable, contributing to deterioration of neighbourly co-existence. She claimed that both sides in the conflict have contributed to its escalation recently. White locals complain about daily verbal attacks and threats made against them by Roma families. They also claim that Roma have constructed illegal buildings, engaged in petty theft, entered their properties several times, destroyed a toilet and defecated outside.
