The city council of Pilsen has shocked the country with its plan to build a ghetto outside the town for what it calls "socially unadaptable citizens".

The towns mayor has rejected a racial bias, saying the ghetto would be for so called "troublemakers" of any race who consistently refuse to pay rent, or upset neighbours by refusing to respect noise and hygiene standards.

According to the mayor it would be up to a court to decide whether or not such a person would be banished to the ghetto. Politicians have expressed concern that the ghetto would inevitably turn into a Romany settlement.

Opposition mp Pavel Dostal has urged re-socialization programs instead, reminding the mayor that at the start of the SWW Jews were also herded into ghettos for the so-called benefit of society.
