Sentences handed down in firebomb attack case
15-12-2015 - Jan Velinger

Two suspects found guilty of firebombing a boarding house in Aš inhabited mostly by Romanies more than three years ago have received sentences of almost seven years in prison each. Twenty-five-year-old Tomáš Kopecký and 35-year-old Michal Poláček were found guilty of attempted murder and the court ruled that the attack had been racially-motivated. Each could have received 20 years behind bars. Mr Kopecký’s defence has already appealed; the state prosecutor as well as the other defendant may also follow suit.
