A group of local Roma citizens was also present but no trouble was reported, said Banská Bystrica police spokesperson Petra Vašková. The 300-strong crowd then dispersed, with Pospolitosť supporters moving on to the nearby village of of Kameňany. Around 80 police officers were on duty both in Jelšava and Kameňany, said Vašková.
