The European Roma Rights Centre in Budapest has turned to the European Court for Human Rights in Strasbourg in the case of a Slovak Roma who died in police custody in August 1999.
Ľubomír Šarišský, 21, had been suspected of stealing a bicycle. Local Slovak police brought him to the Poprad station, where he managed to grab a gun from a policeman and fatally shoot himself in the stomach, an official Slovak police report said.
