Alleged attackers of Chinese diplomat indicted

Three Bratislava secondary school students have been indicted for assaulting a Chinese diplomat and two other Chinese citizens on a city bus July 24.

Eighteen-year-old V.T. from Bratislava has been charged with racially motivated assault. Two other youths, 16-year-old R.N., and 18-year-old R.G - the son of a Slovak police officer - were charged with the lesser crime of hooliganism.

A total of eight youths around 18 years of age assaulted Sun Shizhong and his two friends. One of the group hit the diplomat's friend on the chin, while another knocked the diplomat's ID documents to the ground and then kicked him in the head when he attempted to retrieve them. Sun spent 10 days in hospital with a broken nose and rib and a concussion.

The arrests were made August 20, and those arrested could face between six months and three years in prison. Spokeswoman for the Police Corps Regional Directorate Marta Bujnáková informed the SITA news agency that the case is still under investigation
