Romanies in central and eastern European countries, including the Czech Republic and Slovakia, suffer “tacit apartheid”, the US weekly Business Week reported on Monday, citing a Prague-based human rights worker. According to the article, which focuses on the economic situation of the four-million Romany minority in the region, Romanies mostly live hidden from public eyes in ghettoes situated far from the capitals, such as Prague and Bratislava. Despite EU subsidies, not much progress has been achieved because of “weak political will”, the Business Week has reported.
