Interior Ministry plans Roma specialists

THE INTERIOR Ministry plans to send specialists to Roma villages and settlements to improve communication between Roma and the police, the SITA news wire reported. The trained specialists, according to the ministry, would help the Roma resolve minor conflicts.

Alexander Patkoló, head of the Slovak Roma Initiative, however, protested the Interior Ministry's idea to create a special police department for contact with the Roma.

"It seems like a return to fascism," Patkoló said, adding that the plan also resembles a project of the communist regime, in which a specialised police agenda was set up for the Roma communities.

The ministry rejected the criticism. Klára Orgovánová, the cabinet's plenipotentiary for the Roma communities, also supported the idea.
