Human Rights First (HRF), the US based international human rights NGO, has published a strategy paper recommending a set of measures to the governments of Hungary and the US on violent hate crime and prejudice in Hungary.

Washington-based HRF gives an outline of the instances of violent crime targeting the Roma and verbal attacks against them by some local politicians, officials, social organisations and media outlets.


The strategy paper lists violent attacks targeting the Roma in 2008 and 2010, which included severe beatings in broad daylight, murders, arson, shooting and throwing Molotov cocktails.


Quoting data by the European Roma Rights Centre HRF noted that nine Roma people have been murdered, including two children, and dozens injured.


HRF also notes that the Roma are the victims of widespread discrimination and subject to a racist stereotyping as being more prone to criminality. This notion of "Gypsy criminality" has been nurtured particularly by extremist groups, such as the xenophobic Jobbik party, HRF said.


Hungarian authorities so far have demonstrated the resolve to respond to individual high-profile hate crime cases, HRF said, noting, however "significant shortcomings" that "mar their overall response."


"The new government, headed by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, should make combating hate crime - and racist violence against Roma in particular - a policy priority," HRF said.
