Amnesty International (AI) calls on the Hungarian government, the Interior Ministry and the police to take immediate action to prevent any manifestations of racially-motivated violence and intimidation in the country, AI's Hungary office said in a press release it sent to MTI on Wednesday.

AI also called on the government to launch an investigation into and apply sanctions for the events that have taken place in Gyongyospata and in three other towns over the past weeks, the release said.

 

AI's call came in the wake of a clash between radical nationalists and the local Roma community of Gyongyospata, north Hungary, in which four people were injured late on Tuesday. The town was the site of a paramilitary training camp organised near the Roma neighbourhood over the Easter holidays. Nearly 300 Roma women and children were helped to leave town for the duration of the training last weekend. Authorities reinforced police protection in the town to keep order.

 

AI said that the fear generated in Gyongyospata over weeks by various radical groups and the labelling and intimidation of the local Roma residents escalated on Tuesday night into physical violence, despite repeated statements by the government promising to maintain order.

 

It said that threats and discriminatory rhetoric targeting the Roma community can be interpreted as racist violence, which traumatises the local Roma community and generates tension within the whole society.

 

AI noted that it has submitted its report including a call for the Hungarian government to take more effective measures against racist violence to the UN Human Rights Council, which will assess the human rights situation in Hungary under a regular four-year screening process between May 11-13.
