Mayor of Usti nad Labem has asked parliament to make a decision on wall
30-06-1999
Radio Prague, June 30th - The Mayor of Usti nad Labem has cancelled the measure to build a controversial wall that would separate a predominantly Roma housing estate from the Czech community, and asked parliament to make a decision on the matter.

The council in Usti nad Labem claims that the wall should be built to protect paying residents from the noise made by non-paying residents. Czech and foreign opponents of the wall, including the government, say that wall would be a breach of human rights. The Czech government recommended in May that the wall should not be built.
