Roma will not press charges against Břeclav boy

Roma representatives will not press charges against a boy who falsely stated he had been seriously beaten by members of the community. The chairman of the national association of Roma told the Czech Press Agency on Monday that they wanted to make a conciliatory gesture and make sure that the entire situation is put to rest in a calm and dignified manner. Mass demonstrations broke out in Břeclav last month when the fifteen-year-old was hospitalised and lost a kidney. Last week he confessed that he had actually fallen off a railing.
