Police beat another Roma

A Roma man from the eastern Slovak town of Rožňava, Alexander Részmuves, has laid charges against two policemen he accuses of punching him repeatedly in the face after he was arrested and brought to a town police station. Részmuves admits he was drunk, and was kicking the tires of another man’s car – “I don’t know why, I was drunk and just passing by” – when police arrived and demanded to see his identification. While a police spokesman says the officers used no more force than was necessary to control the drunk assailant, Részmuves says he was taken into custody and repeatedly struck in the nose and mouth by two police officers. He says that after the beating he was told to clean up his own blood, and was taken to hospital to have his nose stitched up. Police say the wounds occurred when he tried to flee the hospital.
