Pecina: police investigating links between firebomb attack and far-right Workers’ Party
15-08-2009 - Rosie Johnston

Martin Pecina, photo: CTK Police are investigating links between a firebomb attack on a Roma family’s home which shocked the nation and the far-right Workers’ Party, Interior Minister Martin Pecina said on Sunday. A two-year old girl remains in hospital in a serious condition with 80 percent burns following April’s attack, in connection with which four people have just been charged. On Sunday, the interior minister said that police were investigating the accuseds’ links with the extremist Workers’ Party. He said, however, that while the investigation was ongoing he would not comment any further. Speaking on Czech Television on Sunday, Mr Pecina said that the Interior Ministry would again try to outlaw the Workers’ Party. He said that the ministry’s case would be brought to court in September.
