Roma migration to the Czech Republic not critical

CZECH Deputy PM for Human Rights Petr Mares said that the migration of the Slovak Roma to the Czech Republic was not critical, the daily SME reported.

Over the past 11 months, 1,046 Roma have requested political asylum in the Czech Republic, but no application has gone through.

However, the Czech media have been reporting Czech concerns that thousands of Slovak Roma are moving to the Czech republic. Recently, Czech Interior Minister Stanislav Gross estimated the number of Slovak Roma in the Czech republic at 14,000 and called for preventive steps.

Slovak Deputy PM for National Minorities Pal Csaky promised that the Slovak government would continue trying to eliminate the causes of Roma migration. He listed sewer systems and support and house-building programs as possible solutions.
