Man gets two years for attack on Roma family|
News, February 21st
A court has sentenced 21-year-old Radek Bedri to two years in prison for an attack on a Roma family in the Ostrava region in the eastern Czech Republic. Bedri threw a petrol bomb through a window into the family's home in 1998, while the family was asleep. One woman barely survived the attack, suffering 2nd and 3rd degree wounds. The court ruled that the attack was racially motivated. Besides Bedri, two other defendants in the case were released for lack of evidence. Bedri has decided to appeal the decision.
