Roma are packing, media claim

After the cancellation of the British visa requirement for Slovaks, several Roma families are planning to travel to Great Britain, the daily Pravda wrote.

"They have already started packing and obviously will leave," Jozef Koèan, mayor of Pavlovce nad Uhrom, where almost 2000 Roma live, told the daily.

Analysts claim that hundreds of Roma will try to apply for asylum in Great Britain.

Roma leader Alexander Patkoló said that he will not try to dissuade Slovak Roma from travelling to Great Britain and applying for political asylum there, as the Slovak government has been mistreating Roma.
