European Court of Human Rights rules against Slovakia in case of police brutality against Roma

The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), which is based in Strasbourg, France, decided yesterday that Slovakia violated the rights of two people harmed by police officers using force during a raid on a Romani community in Moldava nad Bodvou, Slovakia in 2013 because the responsible state bodies did not sufficiently investigate the use of force, which is a violation of the country's international law obligations in the area of human rights. The court awarded each of the injuried parties compensation in the fully requested amount of EUR 20 000.

The incident happened in June 2013, when more than 60 police officers raided the Romani community living on Budulovská Street in Moldava nad Bodvou and physically assaulted approximately 30 people, including children and women. The Counseling Center for Civil and Human Rights (Poradna), an NGO, provided pro bono legal representation for two men who testified they had been subjected to brute force by members of the police both during the raid and at the local police station to which they were conveyed and detained afterward.

Orban closes Hungary! The ban takes effect from today

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has issued a decree banning foreigners from entering the country with a few exceptions. The ban, which takes effect today, was announced last Friday.

Exceptions apply to government officials who organize business events, recipients of medical services, international students with a certificate of full-time service, truck drivers on their way home, guests at family gatherings such as weddings, and participants in sporting, cultural, or religious events.

Anyone allowed to enter Hungary must be quarantined for two weeks and tested negative for the coronavirus twice.

A two-week quarantine is also mandatory for Hungarians returning to the country from abroad.

RDS: Where are the Roma votes? Gege Demirovski showed in his face that he was a "beast"

The parliamentary elections are behind us, and the won mandates are clear, SDSM 46, VMRO-DPMNE 44, DUI 15, Alliance 13 ... Now the calculations remain who will make the Government. What is interesting must be noted, and that is how much the Roma political factor was ready for the election race. As a comparison, here is an example of the municipality of Suto Orizari for the Parliamentary elections in 2016 and 2020. If in these elections VMRO - DPMNE collected about 1,300 votes in 2016, it was over 4,800. In the "deep minus - 3,500, SDSM on July 15 takes 3606 votes from Shutka and in 2016 2,600. "Plus" 1,000 votes, but the fact is that Gege Demirovski and the People's Party of Roma "collected" 1,200 votes.

Now what is the point? In 2016, 10,583 voters voted in Shutka, and on July 15, 2020, barely 8,000 voters. That minus 2,000 votes.

The loser is VMRO-DPMNE, that is a fact, but then Amdi Bajram "ran" for them and brought that number. It is interesting that in 2016 for SDSM several Roma political factors "ran" and brought all together 2,600. Now 3,600 and again everyone ran for SDSM.

But Gege Demirovski really used his campaign. Clearly, 1,200 votes were cast for both SDSM and VMRO-DPMNE. Very masculine played. Slowly but surely Gege has profiled himself as a factor that he hopes will be even greater in the future. He alone seeks 1,200, while SDSM partners - Kurto Dudush, Amdi Bajram, Latifa, Samka, Nezdet, Ferat all together collected 3,600 votes.

If Gege alone is divided into 1,200, and all these others twice less - 600. Clearly like a day! Gege Demirovski showed that he is a "beast". It indirectly shows that Gege's slogan "Vote for Roma" has weight! It is a fact.

SEC: SDSM - 46 seats, VMRO-DPMNE - 44, DUI - 15

According to the latest unofficial results of the State Election Commission, out of 3,421 processed out of a total of 3,480 polling stations, the SDSM-led coalition "We Can" won 46 seats, and VMRO-DPMNE and the coalition 44.

DUI won 15 seats, and the coalition Alliance for Albanians / Alternative - 12. The left won two seats and the DPA one seat in parliament.

According to unofficial results, SDSM and the coalition won 36.12 percent of the vote, and VMRO-DPMNE 34.85.
