Police officials fired over skinhead attacks

INTERIOR Minister Vladimír Palko sacked several police officials due to the lack of resolute police action against skinhead attacks, the daily SME reported.

Palko recalled the head of the Petržalka district police for failing to ensure sufficient order in the area where the young student Daniel Tupý was stabbed by skinheads.

Palko also recalled the head of the Tranava police section as a consequence of an attack by 19 skinheads in a bar in Piešťany. The group attacked several people with stones, knives and burning trashcans. The minister said that the police officials also failed to impose tough enough penalties on the offenders.

Palko also met with top police officials from around the country and stressed the need to take tougher measures against the skinhead movement.
