Czech Roma police officer to receive Order of the British Empire
20-04-2015 - Ruth Frankova

Czech Roma Petr Torák, who serves as officer for the British Police in Cambridgeshire, will receive the Order of the British Empire in May. Queen Elizabeth II has decided to award the officer for his service for the Roma community. Petr Torák has lived in Britain since 1999, when he left the Czech Republic following several racist attacks on him and his family members. He is involved in a number of projects supporting the Roma community and is one of the founders of the Gypsy Roma Traveller Police Association.
