British Home Office officials discuss re-imposing visas for Czechs|
Radio Prague, September 1st - The British Embassy in Prague has confirmed that Home Office representatives
were due to arrive in the Czech capital on Tuesday, to discuss technical
conditions surrounding the possible re-imposition of visas for Czech
An embassy spokesman said it was a regular informal working visit
which had received excessive attention by the Czech media. He added that the
embassy would not release details of the talks. There has been rising
speculation in recent months that London may be on the verge of re-imposing
visas for Czechs, following a steady influx of Roma or gypsy asylum-seekers.
The British government has repeatedly stressed that re-imposing visas would
be a last-resort solution.
