AROUND 400 Roma gathered in a protest march organised by the Roma Union Party (SRÚ) in Košice on April 8, the TASR newswire reported.

Carrying signs reading ‘We Want Jobs’ and ‘Capital-ism = Poverty’, the protesters went to the Constitutional Court to express their disapproval with what they see as light punishment for Milan Juhász, who murdered three Roma in a killing spree in Hurbanovo. SRÚ chair František Tanko confirmed that Roma have already filed a complaint with the Constitutional Court. Party representatives also complained that the government ignores Roma problems and wastes money originally allocated to Roma projects. Tanko also criticised the government’s support for foreign corporations at the expense of domestic businesses.
