13 years later, the Court decides to pay compensation to Roma who were rejected and not served in a restaurant

The Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic has ruled to indemnify four Roma who for almost thirteen years have unsuccessfully sought compensation for discrimination. They filed discrimination lawsuits after staff refused to serve them in a restaurant in a village near Vranov in Topcu in November 2005 because of their ethnic origin.

The Constitutional Court found several errors in the proceedings of the general courts, which led to unnecessary delays in the proceedings and awarded each Roma a compensation of EUR 1,000 and costs.

The anti-discrimination action was taken by the victim in March 2006. This was one of the first actions against ethnic discrimination to be brought by the Slovak courts after the adoption of the 2004 Anti-Discrimination Act.

“That day we returned by car from a business trip from Presov and stopped there. The staff simply told us that they did not serve the Gypsies, ”one of the damaged Roma remembers.

How the war contrasted life in the Roma settlement of Jasenje beside Teocak

Divided between two Bosnian entities between the municipalities of Teocak and Ugnevik is the village of Jasenje, once a wealthy Roma village.

In 1992, life was normal, people were educated, worked, made friends, and today the number of 400 people now drops to 20.

- The local community of Jasenje was one of the few in former Yugoslavia where the majority of the population was Roma.

People were hard working in agriculture, some of them in thermal power plants. There was also a primary school in the village where instruction was in the Roma language.

The village of Jasenje had its own local community, home of culture, reading shops and the like, and today it is just a wreck.

The millions of damages in the village caused the Roma to return to Jasenje, which many today do not even think about.

Even today, due to the excavation of the Mezgraj coal mine, there have been landslides that have endangered the entire village.
