The Roma family living on Družstevná Street in Malacky, the subject of media reports over the past several months, have moved from their house, which should be destroyed within two months, the Nový čas daily reported.

The Roma family living on Družstevná Street in Malacky, the subject of media reports over the past several months, have moved from their house, which should be destroyed within two months, the Nový čas daily reported.

Though the house should have been demolished on September 5 according to a ruling by the Regional Construction Office made in July, it is still standing, Nový čas wrote in its September 6 issue, adding that municipal representatives plan to turn to the local prosecutor and ask him to set a date for demolition.

The daily wrote that the family has had a record of disputes with neighbour Oskar Dobrovodský and other neighbours and that before June the local authorities had failed to resolve the situation.

Malacky Mayor Jozef Ondrejka said that the issue should be finally resolved next week and the main question is whether to offer compensatory housing to what he called “the less adaptable family” or not.
