At the protest meeting against the “Roma terror” as the organisers called the demonstration, the police detained thirty people including former leader of the ultra-right civic association Slovenská Pospolitosť (Slovak Togetherness), the organiser of the protest. All those arrested have already been released.

The Deputy Prime Minister for Knowledge-Based Society, European Affairs, Human Rights and Minorities, Dušan Čaplovič, also supported the police officers. He said to SITA that anti-Roma extremism in Slovakia was an import from abroad. SITA
