Two Georgians and a Czech Roma were brutally beaten in Banská Štiavnica on the night of Saturday, April 6, in front of Pražovňa, a local disco.

The Sme daily wrote in its Tuesday issue that the Czech man fell unconscious twice. His girlfriend a Banská Štiavnica local whose nose was broken in the attack, filed a criminal complaint. The Georgians, who came to the town to help with the reconstruction of the historical Calvary as part of an international programme of the European Union, are considering informing their embassy, as is the Czech. One of the Georgians sustained a serious head injury. The incident occurred when 15 to 20 men with shaven heads started beating the foreigners, kicking them brutally even after they fell to the ground. None of the staff or visitors of the disco intervened, Sme wrote.
