Suspended sentence for author of book which called for gypsy deportation to India

A regional court in Písek on Thursday gave the author of a book calling for Roma, or gypsies, to be deported to India a 14 month jail sentence suspended for two years. Jiří Gaudin, the author of the book “The Final Solution to the Gypsy Problem” was found guilty of inciting hatred of a group of citizens and curtailing their rights and liberty. Gaudin was last year a member of the far right National Party.
