Banja Luka drama epilogue: Old woman and her daughter left homeless based on untitled document

The Popovic family, the elderly Vukosawa, and her daughter Sanja were evicted from a family house where they lived for 50 years on unsolicited documentation.

The family now has an eight-day appeal period to decide on the Banja Luka District Court.

The family lawyer says that in his 24-year law career he does not remember such a case.

"The family was literally evicted from their home where they lived for over 50 years for an alleged debt of about 3500 euros, and the dog is worth around 100,000 euros," the lawyer said.

- Janko Trivic did not sue for a fictional debt of 3500 euros. It came with a document with no verification that had no stamp! - said Sanja Popovic.


Czech President Havel protested against the wall separating non-Roma from Roma on Matiční Street 20 years ago

Twenty years ago, on 13 October 1999, a concrete wall was installed on Matiční Street in the city of Ústí nad Labem. The barrier became an infamous example of problematic coexistence between neighbors in the Czech Republic.

The wall was meant to separate an area of single-family homes that were privately owned by non-Romani people from municipally-owned apartment buildings that were predominantly occupied by Romani people. Under pressure from the Czech Government, and after protests by human rights defenders both abroad and domestically, the barrier was disassembled six weeks later.

The Romani tenants had moved into the municipally-owned units on Matiční Street after moving away from other housing estates in the area in 1994. Their neighbors living in the single-family homes said coexistence with the newcomers was problematic and wrote up a petition demanding the building of a wall so they would not have to hear or see what they complained of as disorder and noise around the municipally-owned buildings.
