Romani participants on Czech "reality" TV show now receiving death threats, claim they were manipulated by producers

The family is also alleging that the TV Nova producers pressured Petra into discussing the welfare benefits the family receives during the taping. The death threats read as follows: “You black, lazy fucks are living off of our taxes. I would shoot all you black gypsy monkeys dead because you don’t work and you cost us CZK 110 billion annually. Your daughter is already as fat as a pig, by the time she’s 20 she’ll weigh 150 kg. Somebody else pays for you to stuff yourselves and live where you do. You black whores, you’ll be dead of cancer in one year. DEATH to all black mugs living on our taxes!!!!!”

“When I read that letter I felt sick. I knew, when my girlfriend and I went on ‘Wife Swapping’, that everybody would criticize us, but I never anticipated that somebody would send something so disgusting to my address. I don’t know what such a person is capable of, so we are afraid, after all, we have two young children,” Marian (25) told news server

The main “subject” of the episode, which was thoroughly covered on the websites of different tabloid news servers and on the Facebook profile of “Wife Swapping” (in Czech, Výměny manželek) even before it aired, is the fact that Marian has not had a job for the last five years and lives on welfare. Petra said during the taping that they receive almost CZK 27,000 [EUR 1,065] per month in benefits and survive on that without any problems.


"The children are scared, they beat us and insult us": Police raid in a Roma neighborhood in Belgrade

On Saturday evening, the Belgrade police raided a Roma settlement in Palilula municipality on Vuka Vrcevica Street. Zojani Demush, whose house they broke into, tells H1 that the policemen were violent, threatened and insulted them on a national basis.

Zojani Demus told N1 that the police broke into his house in search of a neighbor suspected of attacking a police officer.

He says that the policemen were violent, beating the women in the house, and the housewives insulted them by shouting "Gypsies" and cursing at them.

Everything, he adds, was also attended by the inspector, who earlier in the day was with the Demushi family for the same reason. According to Demus, the police broke into other houses during the evening, acting in the same way.

"They make us spy for them." They come while you're sleeping, they don't have a warrant, they say, "What are Gypsies, do you know this, do you know that," Demus recounts his experiences with the police in the neighborhood where he lives.

He says that this situation has been going on for a month, and members of the police kept coming in search of a neighbor who was fighting with the police.

"Drugs are sold here, they are sold, they know it all," remarked our interlocutor.

He points out that everyone is scared, especially the children, and they don't know what else to do except to turn to the media.

H1 tried to get answers about the police action on Vuk Vrcević Street from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Serbia, but no one answered the phone during the evening.




Serbia: Romani mother says obstetrician broke one of her ribs, racially insulted and threatened her during labor, causing her baby to die

Outrage and protests have been sparked in Serbia by the case of an obstetrician who allegedly threatened a Romani mother in labor with violence and caused her baby to die. The mother, Marica Mihajlović, has described her shocking experience on Facebook.

An autopsy of the Romani baby has confirmed her death was caused by the violent delivery. The obstetrician has been arrested and faces charges.

The young Romani woman was received in hospital in Sremská Mitrovica on 11 January 2024 after seven days in labor. A gynecologist informed her that she could not deliver naturally and planned a Caesarean delivery for that afternoon.

The obstetrician, however, did not come to the hospital until the evening and decided to attempt vaginal birth even though the child was too large. “The time passed and the doctor had still not arrived. He did not come until 18:20 and decided to induce labor the natural way. However, the nurses told me that the situation had not changed and that a C-section was necessary for me to deliver,” Mihajlović described in her Facebook post of 18 January.

Mihajlović alleges that when the doctor did arrive, he ignored her request for an operation, insulting her in racist terms and threatening to beat her face. “They’re giving me oxygen so I can breathe. I am asking the doctor for a C-section, but he does nothing but insult me. I beg and beg him for a C-section to save the child. At that moment, he beats me and squeezes my jaw. He threatens to split my skull in two, to crush my head. He makes racist insults. When he sees the baby cannot be born, he halts my labor and starts giving me narcotics and cutting me,” she described.

The doctor then pushed on the woman’s belly so forcefully that he broke one of her ribs. She lost consciousness because she was unable to breathe.

Baby Elenka was suffocated during the delivery by her own amniotic fluid and was born without any signs of life. While the doctors did manage to revive her heartbeat, she died the next day.

“The baby was healthy, I got regular checkups during my pregnancy. The monster who is responsible for the death of my child could have saved her, but he didn’t want to,” alleges Mihajlović, adding that she is neither the first nor the last woman in labor to whom this has happened under that doctor’s supervision.

“The midwives told me I have all of their support and that the other women in the delivery room with me will also testify on my behalf,” Mihajlović has posted. Romani news server Novosti reported on Monday that an autopsy has confirmed the death of Elenka was caused by her violent birth.



11 years since the controversial title of the Russian journalist and accused as a foreign agent Alsou Kurmasheva "Gypsy woman cannot be the face of Russia"

"A gypsy cannot be the face of Russia", with this title, in 2013, the story of Alsou Kurmasheva was taken, which she originally published on Radio Free Europe in Russian after the contest for Miss Russia with the title "The winner of Miss Russia, ethnic Tatar woman, the target of insults on the Internet", after the winner of this beauty contest, Elmira Abdrzakova, was declared the most beautiful in the Russian Federation, and especially after she was subjected to an unprecedented harassment of hate speech and threats on social networks.

This text by Alsou Kurmasheva was just one of many by her and some of her colleagues in the Russian media that year, in 2013, began to warn of the great growth of nationalism with outbreaks of fascism in Russia. She is the second American journalist detained in Russia in 2023, following Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich.

Alsou Kurmasheva is accused of not declaring herself a "foreign agent", a charge that carries a prison sentence of up to five years.

In the conditions in which Russia now finds itself, no one can say how long the journalist Kurmasheva will be in custody until she declares that she is a "foreign agent", and to make the absurdity even more drastic, if she confesses she will face a prison term of at least 5 years. This is expected by Alsou Kurmasheva according to the law that Putin passed in 2019 by which Russia tightened the laws on media and non-governmental organizations that can be qualified as "foreign agents"
