Dentist ordered to pay compensation to Roma family over discrimination
22-02-2016  Ian Willoughby

A dentist has been ordered to apologise in writing to Roma family and pay them CZK 30,000 in compensation for refusing to treat them because of their skin colour, the news website Lidovky.cz reported on Sunday. Members of the family had set up an appointment with the Brno dentist by telephone but when they arrived at her surgery she refused to register them and denied having agreed to treat two of them, who had acute problems with their teeth. She had repeatedly denied discrimination before admitting to it in court, Lidovky.cz said.
