Former deputy PM Čunek: Roma genetically lack discipline

Former deputy prime minister Jiří Čunek told the news website tyden.cz on Sunday that Romanies genetically lacked discipline. The Christian Democrat politician, who was elected to the municipal council in Vsetín, northern Moravia, in the local elections, was asked whether he thought any Roma voted for him. Mr Čunek said that they said they did but that they rarely vote because of their genetically-inflicted lack of discipline. In his career, Mr Čunek came under fire several times over his comments on the Romany community.
