Czech police may arrest extremist leaders over Vítkov firebomb attack, says representative of affected family
17-08-2009 - Pavla Horáková

Photo: CTK A representative of the Roma family whose house was firebombed in April in Vítkov, North Moravia, has said the four people whom the police accused in the case were mere pawns who were only fulfilling orders. He added the police would now focus on the people who gave the orders. Late last week, the police charged four men with racially motivated attempted murder. Three are accused of directly carrying out the firebombing; the other was their driver. If found guilty they face 12 to 15 years in prison, or possibly a life sentence.
