A judge in Liberec has ordered that an eighteen year old Romany be
taken into custody on the advice of police investigators. They say
the romany is guilty of having assaulted a regional police
inspector in the town centre last Sunday.
Five teenagers are being questioned by the police, so far however,
only the one has admitted to police accusations, the rest are being
treated as witnesses.
The eighteen year old currently in jail, faces charges of grievous
bodily harm, attacking a public figure and committing a racially
motivated crime. If found guilty, he could face a sentence of
three to ten years in jail.
