Government will seek expert valuation of Lety property
07-11-2016 - Jan Velinger

The government agreed on Monday it will seek an expert valuation of the land housing a controversial pig farm in Lety, south Bohemia, which was the site of a labour camp and later concentration camp during WWII where Roma were interned; around 300 people died there due to disease and poor treatment and some 500 people were sent on to Auschwitz. Past governments considered buying the property for the farm to be relocated but failed; the current cabinet has agreed to try deal with the issue. Finding a solution is one of the priorities of the human rights minister Jiří Dienstbier; but there has been speculation that Mr Dienstbier could be one of the ministers dropped in a pending cabinet reshuffle.
