Amnesty International highlights poor treatment of refugees in CR in annual report
25-02-2016  Ian Willoughby

The human rights organisation Amnesty International has highlighted the poor treatment of refugees in the Czech Republic and the high number of Romany children in "practical" schools (former special schools) in its annual report on the state of human rights around the world. The document refers to anti-migration rallies held in the country last year and the Czech Republic’s rejection of compulsory quotas of refugees imposed by the European Union. On the positive side, the report praises legal changes aimed at the integration of Romany children into mainstream schools and a court decision to recognise adoption by a male couple.
