"Poem" circulating about racially-motivated murder|
News, February 16th
A representative of the family of a Roma man stabbed to death by a far-right skinhead has said a poem is circulating among neo-Nazi circles celebrating his killing. Twenty-two-year-old Vlastimil Pechanec is being tried for the murder of Ota Absolon, a Roma man from the eastern town of Svitavy. Mr Absolon was stabbed in a local bar last June in what eyewitnesses say was an unprovoked attack. The representative of his family said the author of the poem was calling on neo-Nazis to help pay the costs of Mr Pechanec's trial.
