The Czech Supreme Court has rejected a complaint by four men who in 2009 firebombed a Romany home, and upheld their sentences of 20 and 22 years in jail, a spokesman for the court said on Wednesday. The four arsonists threw a Molotov cocktail into a house in the village of Vítkov in the north of the country, inhabited by a Romany family. A two-year-old girl suffered severe burns in the attack, and has since had to undergo a series of operations. The court rejected the appeal as “obviously unsubstantiated”, the spokesman said.
