Skinhead gets 13 years for murder of Romany man|
News, March 29th
A court in Hradec Kralove, east Bohemia has sentenced a neo-nazi skinhead to 13 years in prison for the
murder of a Romany man. Last July twenty-two-year-old Vlastimil Pechanec racially abused Romany Ota
Absolon at a disco in the town of Svitavy before stabbing him fatally in the stomach. Police intervened
outside the court on Friday as a group of skinheads supporting Pechanec tried to attack human rights
activists. On Thursday a court in Prague gave a skinhead seven years in prison for attacking three people.
