Incident at Lety|
A gathering of the ultra right National Party at Lety, the site of a
wartime camp for Romanies, sparked an incident with Roma rights activists.
Witnesses say there was a brief skirmish and two Roma rights activists, who
shouted "away with neo-Nazis" were detained by the police. One of
them was Markus Pape, a well known Roma rights lawyer. The police say that
Mr. Pape committed a misdemeanour when he interrupted the gathering of the
National Party. Mr. Pape says that he was physically attacked by three
members of the party and will press charges.
